Manchester United are ready to anger Chelsea by signing their top transfer target Raphael Varane in the January transfer window.
The Real Madrid centre back, who has been dubbed ‘the best young defender in the world’, had looked poised to join Chelsea in a £19million deal in the new year.
But Marca says United have now entered the race and other reports suggest they’re pushing to do business.
Blues boss Jose Mourinho is a huge admirer of the player and has been desperate for him to come to Stamford Bridge, but United are hopeful of winning the race.
Varane talked up a switch away this week after admitting he’s unhappy with his amount of game time at Madrid, opening the door to an exit.
