Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is reportedly interested in hijacking a key Manchester United transfer target this summer.
According to Eurosport via Metro, Chelsea are considering hijacking Manchester United’s move for Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane.
Varane, who has spent almost a decade at the Bernabeu, has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford, but Eurosport say Chelsea are also interested in securing his signature.
Varane is stalling over signing a new Real Madrid contract and recent reports claim the France international is keen on a move to the Premier League.
Eurosport say Chelsea have other defensive targets in mind in case Varane, 28, ends up staying at Real Madrid.
Varane started all four of France’s matches at Euro 2020, including their dramatic last-16 penalty shootout defeat to Switzerland.
