Long standing Chelsea target Raphael Varane is reportedly ready to listen to offers to leave Real Madrid this summer, according to the Metro.
Chelsea Transfer Gossip
Varane has emerged as a top transfer target for the Blues as manager Jose Mourinho looks to step up his search of a long term replacement for veteran skipper John Terry.
And their chances of prizing the young Frenchman away from the Santiago Bernabeu have been given a boost as reports in Spain claim that he is now ready to accept a move away after taking up a more peripheral role in the Real squad last term.
Varane is said to be ‘obsessed’ with starting games, and would apparently accept a move to any top club if it meant he got regular game time.
Real are believed to be open to selling the centre-back, but only if a club can match up to his £22m asking price.
