Chelsea are allegedly leading Manchester United in the race to sign Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane during this current summer’s transfer window.
The France international remains a key player for Los Blancos, however the 28-year-old’s contract is expected to terminate next June, which has prompted a host of speculation encompassing his future.
Manchester United are supposed to be interested to sign the World Cup winner in the forthcoming market, and a new report guaranteed that Raphael Varane supported a move to the Premier League over a move to Paris Saint-Germain.
As per Mundo Deportivo, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are solidly in the race for the Frenchman, however Chelsea are presently at the top of the line.
The report asserts that the Premier League giants are set to pay the £61m needed to sign the defender during this current summer’s transfer window.
Zinedine Zidane’s side are supposed to be ready to selling the former Lens youngster this summer as they hope to raise funds to seek after any semblance of PSG’s Kylian Mbappe and Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Braut Haaland.
Raphael Varane has scored twice in 38 appearances for Real Madrid this term.
