Chelsea have been given a boost in their race to sign Real Madrid’s center back, Raphael Varane as Ancelotti has revealed plans to let a center back go.
With the player demands for first team football at the Bernabeau, Ancelotti has revealed that he would either have to let Pepe or Varane go. While Pepe’s age might suggest he would be axed, the Portuguese defender’s big game experience might also be a factor to consider in the transfers away from the club. Varane has also been accused of inconsistent form, something you cannot accuse Pepe of. However it turns out, Chelsea would definitely make a play for Varane in the summer.
Manchester United on their part are believed to be interested in Pepe and Varane with Pepe ranking higher on their wishlist. So, whoever Real Madrid decide to axe, he is sure of a move to another European heavyweight.
