Chelsea are reportedly still interested in signing Raphael Varane.
According to AS, the Frenchman is on his way out of Real Madrid, and he is keen on testing himself in the Premier League.
The centre-back is out of contract in 2022 and the Blues could use his situation to further strengthen the defence next season. Thomas Tuchel has kept 11 clean sheets in the last 12 games.
The Spanish giants, who are building a new stadium, will be keen on ensuring they get a transfer fee for the 27-year-old to help them with their current financial crisis.
The report states that Madrid will accept any fee of around £51 million for the defender.
Varane has won 19 trophies in Spain. He has won the Champions League four times, four La Liga titles and also became a World Cup winner with France in 2018.
