Chelsea and Manchester United have both been told that they can sign Real Madrid’s ultra talented young defender Raphael Varane for only £20 million in the January transfer window, according to the Daily Express.
Man Utd and the Stamford Bridge club are both thought to be in the market for a new central defender this month.
Varane, who has impressed in the small snippets of action that he has been afforded at Real, has become both side’s top target.
The French international is on the hunt for first team football, having seen his opportunities limited under former Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti.
Both Premier League sides are willing to offer Varane that, and are plotting bids as a result.
Real are willing to cut Varane loose if they get offered a deal matching his £20 million valuation.
Part of the reason behind their willingness to part with him is the fact they are keen to give Nacho, who the club produced themselves, a chance in the first team.
