Chelsea plans to hijack Manchester United transfer move.

Chelsea are contemplating hijacking Manchester United’s summer move for Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane, according to reports.

While the Blues flaunted an awesome defensive record under Thomas Tuchel last season – keeping 11 clean sheets in 19 league matches – the club are open to reinforcing their squad with a new center-back.

France international Varane, who has given almost a decade of his services at the Bernabeu, has been heavily associated with a move to Old Trafford, but Eurosport say Chelsea are also interested in securing his signature.

Varane is delaying over signing a fresh Real Madrid deal and recent reports allege he wants to depart this summer to take on a new challenge.

A move to Manchester United, where he would partner club captain Harry Maguire, could satisfy but Chelsea are also in the conversation.

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 games at Euro 2020, including their climactic last-16 penalty shootout fall to Switzerland.

Chelsea are also looking to add Tuchel’s attacking options this summer following a season in which the Blues finished fourth in the Premier League and won the Champions League.

Varane has made 360 debuts for Real Madrid and Rio Ferdinand has alerted Manchester United and Chelsea that he will ‘100 per cent’ stay at Real Madrid.

“Varane is just doing things, massaging the papers, the media papers and the headlines to get a bigger deal at Real Madrid,” Ferdinand told his FIVE YouTube channel.

“If Varane doesn’t sign a new deal at Real Madrid, I’ll be surprised. Real Madrid are not letting Ramos and Varane go in the same window, 100 per cent. He’s not going anywhere, man’s gonna get a new deal.

“It’s happened in the past, it’s not new, players like [Toni] Kroos and [Bastian] Schweinsteiger have done it. At Bayern as well, they’ve all done it.”
