The youngster is regarded as a top defensive prospect at the Bernabeu, though he has fallen behind big-name duo Pepe and Sergio Ramos in the pecking order this season.
Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is a long-time admirer of the French international, having handed the player his first-team breakthrough during his time in charge of the Spanish giants.
