Jose Mourinho is a big fan of the French defender and has previously expressed interest in his signature during his Chelsea days. In fact, it was Mourinho who gave Varane the chance to rise to the occasion when he was Real Madrid’s manager.
Therefore, while he has already signed Eric Bailly from Villarreal for a hefty price tag, the Portuguese manager would be eager to join his forces with Varane once again. In addition to Manchester United, Chelsea are another long-term admirer of the French defender.
However, it remains to be seen whether they will express their interest in him after the arrival of Antonio Conte.
However, with no European football for next season, it will be difficult for Chelsea to lure the 22-year-old to Stamford Bridge.
Thus, if all the factors are taken into account, Manchester United will be the favorites provided Real Madrid allow Varane to leave in this summer. However, the Red Devils will have to pay a hefty price tag, even if Real Madrid agree to sell the star defender in the coming months.
