Thomas Tuchel might have won the Champions League with the help of a steady and reliable defense but, the manager still wants one or two additions in defence.
Raphael Varane is the player Tuchl wants Chelsea to sign this summer and has made that known by calling the defender and assuring him of first team football once he agrees to play for the club.
According to Spanish television show El Partidazo de Cope, Real Madrid will sell Raphael Varane once his £52m asking price is meant. The 28-year-old still has a year to run and has rejected extending his contract with the club.
Chelsea are the front runners to sign the world class defender but will face stiff competition from Manchester United, Juventus and PSG.
