Chelsea Linked With Moves to Sign Five Real Madrid Stars: Report

Varane Barcelona

The Daily Express believe that Mourinho will look to lure French youngster Raphael Varane this summer, a move that could well prove very tricky given the impact the youngster has made this term.

The 20-year-old has made his breakthrough in the Real Madrid first team this season, and is widely considered to be one of the best young defenders in the world.

The Spanish giants signed Varane from Lens for around £8.5million when he was just a teenager, and he has become an important member of the team under the guidance of Mourinho, who is known to rate him highly.

Modric Future

The Sun believe Mourinho could look to persuade Luka Modric into a Premier League return this summer.

The 27-year-old moved to the Bernebeu from White Hart Lane last summer for £33million, but was voted the worst La Liga signing of the season in a fans’ poll.

However, his fine reputation in the Premier League remains, and Chelsea were said to be interested in signing him in the summer of 2011, though he remained at Spurs for another year.

Modric has won over some of his doubters with a series of quality displays but a new boss at Real Madrid may well have other ideas about the Croatian’s future at the club and the midfield schemer is perhaps a realistic summer signing that Chelsea could pull off.
