Breaking News – Chelsea Tables £35.8m Bid For UCL Winner

Jose Mourinho

According to metro, Chelsea are set to table in a bid in the region of £35.8 million for high rated Real Madrid and France international central back Raphael Varane in a matter of weeks.

Jose Mourinho is known to be a big fan of the player having given him his break through while still the manager of Real Madrid. The player is believed to be unsettled at Real Madrid due to the fierce competition for place at Real Madrid while he is very likely to become a key member of Chelsea playing squad should the move materialize.

With John Terry not getting younger, Mourinho will be able to offer the Frenchman a regular playing time. Although it is reported that Madrid officials have held a meeting with the player to discussion his future with the club, Mourinho is reportedly convinced he has a good chance of getting the player to sign for Chelsea once the summer transfer window is opened.

Chelsea are set to test Real Madrid’s resolve by putting in an offer of £35.8m which they hope Real Madrid will accept. Should Chelsea manage to convince the player to sign for them and should Real Madrid agree to sanction a sale, he will be a long term replacement for soon to retire John Terry.
