Chelsea ready to rival Man United for Raphael Varane

Chelsea are currently planning a summer battle with Manchester United for the signing of Real Madrid center-back Raphael Varane.

Los Blancos' contract with the 27-year-old defender is set to expire in June, and Zinedine Zidane's side are said to be open to selling him in the upcoming market in order to acquire transfer funds.

Man United are thought to be the frontrunners in the chase for the France international, who has two goals in 36 club appearances in the 2020-21 season.

The Red Devils, according to Bild journalist Christian Falk, will face stiff competition from Chelsea during the summer transfer window.

Thomas Tuchel is a fan of the World Cup winner, according to Falk, and the Blues will look into taking him to Stamford Bridge at the end of the season.

Since joining Madrid from Lens in 2011, Varane has made 355 appearances for the club.
