“I know him very well; when we started out at Lens, we would sit next to each other on the team’s away trips. We’re both originally from Lille and although he is a bit younger than me, I’d already heard a lot of good things about him.”
“He played in central defence but also sometimes as a midfielder. When I made my international debut at youth level for France, he was in the side too and once I saw him, I knew right away that he was going to be a top player. What he has done so far hasn’t come as a surprise to me at all.”
“He has always been a very laid-back bloke and a very intelligent guy too; he knows what he is doing and I believe that he will become Real Madrid’s captain one day in the future.”
Varane is on the radar of Chelsea since a long time, however it is not said that the Blues will be able to sign a contract with the player. Especially when even their former player does not give them too many chances about it.
