The Daily Star certainly has our regulars in the Football Transfer Tavern looking up keenly as they have a rather interesting piece of information about Chelsea.
The Blues are reportedly willing to make a transfer sacrifice of not one but two wingers in order to land their top defensive target Raphael Varane.
The Real Madrid defender would be willing to link up with old manager Jose Mourinho once again as his first team opportunities at the Bernabeu don’t look like improving any time soon and Chelsea are still on the hunt for a world class centre back who could become John Terry’s long-term successor.
Our regulars cannot wait to hear who the Blues are ready to cash in on and as our landlord informs us that the players facing the axe are Mohamed Salah and Andre Schurrle, we are not particularly shocked at all.
Both have failed to impress this season with Salah the worse of the two in the eyes of our resident Blues fans. Their combined sale should raise the £20 million it would cost to bring French international Varane to Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea fans. What are the chances you will be able to land Varane? Do you think him and Kurt Zouma could be the future? Let us know your thoughts below.
