Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho will use Real Madrid’s apparent interest in Blues keeper Petr Cech to his advantage as he continues to push for Bernabeu defender Raphael Varane according to the Daily Express.

Carlo Ancelotti knows Cech well from his spell in charge at Stamford Bridge and having just signed Costa Rica keeper Keylor Navas one can only imagine that interest in the Czech Republic star would only be relevant if either, or both, Diego Lopez and Iker Casillas were to leave the Spanish capital.

Mourinho brought young Frenchman Varane to Real Madrid and the 21 year old is said to be unhappy with his current contract and is ready to push for a move if his financial demands are not met, and would perhaps be tempted by a chance to reunite with his former boss.

The arrival of Thibaut Courtois, after three seasons on loan at Atletico Madrid, at the west London outfit may well lead to Cech seeking a fresh challenge as he will, quite rightly, consider himself too good to be wasting away on the bench.
