Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane is in talks with Portuguese super agent Jorge Mendes.

El Pais says Mendes failed with a previous attempt to sign the French youngster to his stable, but has had better luck after reviving talks in January.

Varane could join Real teammates Pepe, Fabio Coentrao, Cristiano Ronaldo, Angel Di Maria and Ricardo Carvalho, along with coach Jose Mourinho, in signing for Mendes.
