Perez looking to cash in on world class superstar as Chelsea looking to wrap up five-year £300,000-a-week deal

Chelsea are looking to try and win the race to sign Raphael Varane from Real Madrid during the summer transfer window.

Thomas Tuchel is expected to be handed a massive transfer budget in the summer to add a world class defender and striker to the attack, and the Chelsea have been linked with a move for Varane.

Varane has been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League this summer with reports that Real Madrid are willing to cash in to help raise some funds to nail down their top transfer targets

According to Mundo Deportivo, Real Madrid will definitely sell Varane this in the coming months, should he refuse to sign a new deal, and President Florentino Perez hopes to receive more than £60million for the defender – an easy fee for English sides to reach.

Madrid are believed to have offered Varane around £100,000-a-week to stay at Santiago Bernabeu, but he is reportedly seeking closer to the £200,000-a-week mark to commit to the club.

Quizzed on the speculation he is generating after linking up with the France squad for Euro 2020 duty, Varane recently told reporters: “This is not the time to talk about my future, I am focused on the selection, on this Euro, it is normal and logical to ask the question and for my part it is normal and logical to focus on the upcoming deadlines.

“We are all human beings. We can think about it. As for my personal case, I am focused on the objectives that we have in the France team, it is not a subject that I will discuss every day in my room at Clairefontaine.

“I am focused on my goal, and now is not the time to discuss it. If I have to talk about it, it will be directly with the people concerned.”
