Bayern join chase for Chelsea target.
Bayern Munich could be set to provide Chelsea with some firm competition for the signing of Real Madrid youngster Raphael Varane, according to Fichajes.net.
The French international defender was a favourite of Blues boss Jose Mourinho during his time in charge at the Bernabeu, and he has since been keen to link up with him again at Stamford Bridge.
However, Bayern are now also in the market for defensive signings after losing Javi Martinez to injury, with another Real Madrid player in Sami Khedira also reported to be in Pep Guardiola’s sights.
Varane is said to be considering his future at Madrid as he faces no assurances of being first choice for the club, and a move to the Allianz Arena may prove tempting as he looks to progress in his career.
It is thought that a bid of around £32m may be enough to persuade the Spanish giants to sell the centre-back this summer.
