Chelsea to test Real Madrid resolve for Varane

Chelsea are ready to test Real Madrid's resolve for Raphael Varane.Marca says Chelsea have already put out the feelers over a possible move.

Varane is reportedly considering leaving if he doesn't get first-team football at the Bernabeu.

Real boss Carlo Ancelotti has previously preferred to start Pepe and Sergio Ramos and Varane is unhappy that he's third in the pecking order.

Blues boss Jose Mourinho has been a long-term admirer of Varane and once hailed him as "the best young central defender in the world".
