Chelsea Ready To Swoop For Real Madrid Defender Raphael Varane

Reports are out claiming that Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is encouraged in his interest for Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane.

Raphael Varane

The Daily Mail reported that the 21-year-old’s representatives will meet senior staff in Madrid next week as the French centre back looks to at least treble his £25,000-per-week wages to a figure more in line with other members of Real’s squad.

Varane has three years left on the deal he signed upon joining the European champions, under Mourinho’s tutelage, in 2011 and is hoping his rise through the ranks to become first choice centre back at the Bernabeu will allow him to negotiate an impressive new deal.

But if Real bosses do not submit to the French international’s demands he would consider a move to Stamford Bridge – and his close bond with The Special One would allow him to encourage Chelsea’s interest.
