Real Madrid move for Petr Cech, Chelsea linked with Varane [The Times]
- Updated: August 7, 2014
The goalkeeping situation at Real Madrid is not easy to fathom.
One could easily say the same thing about Chelsea, but The Times are usually very careful about their transfer stories.
Gary Jacob reveals today that Real Madrid are ready to move for Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech.
This is yet another report that confirms Thibaut Courtois will be number one Chelsea goalkeeper in the coming season.
If Real Madrid do move for Cech, then Chelsea are tipped to enquire about French defender Raphael Varane.
Jose Mourinho brought Varane into the Real Madrid first team and rates the central defender highly.
Los Blancos interest in Cech comes in the same week that Costa Rica goalkeeper Keylor Navas was signed.
Diego Lopez is expected to sign for AC Milan on loan in the coming days and Real Madrid are reportedly looking to offload Iker Casillas.
