Rumour: Manchester United and Chelsea to fight for Raphael Varane's signature
Both Manchester United and Chelsea are targeting Real Madrid’s Raphael Varane to fill their centre-back position as early as this month. According to reports from Spanish dailies, the price for the youngster has been set at £20 million.
Jose Mourinho and Louis van Gaal are ready to promise the French International first team football, something that Carlo Ancelotti cannot provide right now.
Real are planning on grooming Spanish International, Nacho through the ranks to replace the Frenchman. Pepe is also on the verge of signing a new contract, which might see him stay at the Santiago Bernabeu for a long time to come.
