Chelsea target Varane seeks Real Madrid clear-the-air talks

Raphael Varane is becoming unsettled at Real Madrid.

With Chelsea watching, Varane is seeking clear-the-air talks with Real coach Carlo Ancelotti.

Marca says after recovering from knee surgery, Varane discovered that the Italian saw Pepe and Sergio Ramos as untouchable and he remains unhappy with that state of affairs.

Real are reluctant to sell the France defender, though he will need to be convinced he is a first-choice by Ancelotti before the market shuts.
