Sources report that Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane has talked about ending his career at previous club RC Lens at the age of 35.

“At the age of 35, with a filled trophy cabinet, I will return to RC Lens,” said the France international.

Varane is currently linked with Chelsea, having reportedly been made available for £19 million, with Blues boss Jose Mourinho previously describing the 21-year-old as the best centre-back of his generation, and is thought to have been keen to sign him.

With only three starts managed so far this season for Real, he has fallen out of favour at the Santiago Bernabeu, with the Stamford Bridge outfit currently on the look-out for a long-term replacement for 33-year-old captain John Terry, although the former England international has managed to play every minute of his side’s current English Premier League campaign so far, and has shown little signs of ageing.
