Chelsea keep tabs on Real Madrid youngster
Chelsea are said to be monitoring the situation of promising young Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane, according to the Independent.
The Blues remain in the market for defensive signings after allowing David Luiz to join Paris Saint-Germain earlier this summer, and Jose Mourinho knows Varane well from his time in charge at the Bernabeu.
Regarded as one of the most promising young centre-backs in Europe, Varane could be a great long-term replacement for John Terry at the back, and is said to be considering his future in the Spanish capital.
