Man City make cheeky move for Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane

Manchester City are making a cheeky move for Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane.

City management are seeking to improve Pep Guardiola's defensive options for next season and have made a move for World Cup winner Varane.

Tuttosport says City have opened talks with Varane's representatives about the prospect of a move to England this summer.

The defender has been informed how highly he is regarded by Guardiola and the plans City's manager has for him.

But for their part, Real have no intentions of losing Varane and it will take an effort from the player to force a shift in position.
