Raphael Varane - The Footballing World

Chelsea and Manchester United told Varane costs £20 million

Chelsea and Manchester United are currently targeting Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane as they are on the hunt for a new centre-back in January, and the English Premier League duo are told to pay £20 million for the France international.

Blues boss Jose Mourinho and Red Devils manager Louis van Gaal are both keen to offer Varane first-team football which has been hard to come by under Real boss Carlo Ancelotti, and are plotting to launch bids this month.

And the Santiago Bernabeu outfit are reportedly to part ways with the young star if they are offered £20 million for his services.

The Spanish La Liga giants are currently readying a new lucrative contract for experienced defender Pepe, and are open to letting Varane leave in order to give club-grown Nacho a chance in the squad.
