Mourinho to go all out for Varane

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is chasing Real Madrid central defender Raphael Varane and will go all out to sign him this summer.

According to The Sun, Mourinho will return to his former club in a bid to take the Frenchman to Stamford Bridge and is willing to pay around €55m to secure his signature.

Varane’s chances at the Santiago Bernabeu have been limited this season, with Sergio Ramos and Pepe cementing their partnership at the heart of Carlo Ancelotti’s defence, and a move to the Premier League could be the answer as he seeks assurances regarding his future.

The France international was recommended to Madrid by countryman Zinedine Zidane and has made 57 La Liga appearances for Los Blancos, having signed from Lens in June 2011 for a reported €10m.
