REPORTS: Chelsea Make Real Madrid Defender A Priority For Thomas Tuchel This Summer

It was reported that Chelsea will release few players this summer, the likes of loanee Ross Barkley and Ruben Loftus-cheek, Tammy Abraham, Emerson, Callum Hudson Odoi might leave Chelsea this summer. Hakim Ziyech has also been linked with few clubs this summer but the Moroccan has no intention of leaving the club this summer. Hakim Ziyech wasn't a large part of Thomas Tuchel plan as he barely made it to the starting lineup.

Chelsea have been linked with various European stars this summer, Chelsea was initially linked with Erling Haaland but it was reported that Erling Haaland won't leave Borussia Dortmund this summer. Erling Haaland showed interests in joining Chelsea but he'll have to stay another season at Borussia Dortmund and might consider a move to Chelsea next summer. Chelsea are currently battling with Paris Saint German for Inter Milan and Morocco full back Achraf Hakimi.

Chelsea have now been linked with France and Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane, Manchester United and Paris Saint German have also shown interests in the Frenchman. If Raphael Varane decides to leave Real Madrid this summer, he could join either of the three clubs. The post from one of Chelsea's alternate sources can be seen below.

Chelsea will need a defender who will work side by side with Antonio Rudiger as Thiago Silva might miss matches on injury. Thiago Silva sustained few injuries last season and Chelsea really felt his absence, they won't have to go through such if they sign Raphael Varane this summer. Manchester United are badly in need of a World Class center back, they had a terrible defensive record last season. Ole Gunnar Solskjær side scored a lot of goals in the English Premier League last season and conceded more goals than any of the top teams in the League.

Chelsea have made signing Raphael Varane a priority for Thomas Tuchel this summer. Which team is more likely to sign Raphael Varane this summer if he decides to leave Real Madrid?
