Chelsea on verge of massive £35 million deal as world class talks opened

Chelsea have been given a huge boost in their chase for Raphael Varane, after Real Madrid, opened talks with Pepe.

Varane has struggled to get in ahead of Pepe at Madrid under Carlo Ancelotti despite breaking through under Jose Mourinho.

And that has led to talk that he could leave the club in the summer window, as he knows that Pepe will once again be ahead of him in the pecking order next season.

And reports in France suggest that a new deal for Pepe at the Bernabeu would all but spell the end of Varane’s time in Madrid. © 2017 Frontier Theme
