AS: Real Madrid will listen to offers for Chelsea target

Some interesting news coming out of Spain this Saturday could grab the attention of Chelsea fans.

We know that the club appear to be targeting a new centre back this summer, and we have heard many names mentioned as potential options.

We also just sat down with Tony Mount, the Father of Mason, who provided us with some great insights and opinions here.

One of those is Raphael Varane from Real Madrid, as reported by MARCA recently.

The 27-year old French international is only contracted at Madrid until next summer, and talks over a new deal have stalled in recent months.

This could put a number of the interested clubs on high alert, including Chelsea.

Furthermore, Spanish outlet AS are reporting that Madrid will now listen to offers for the centre back this summer so as to avoid losing him on a free next summer.

This would be the ideal target for Chelsea to pursue, a ready made top class centre back with plenty of experience and the perfect attributes to fit right into the starting line up.
