Manchester United are still keen on highly-rated Real Madrid youngster Raphael Varane who is wanted by Chelsea, [football] direct news understands. The 20-year-old is one of the most promising young players currently on the books at the Bernabeu. Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is keen to link up with the player again after the Portuguese gave the starlet his first-team debut during his stint at the Spanish giants. United, meanwhile, have been searching for reinforcements at the back this summer as they prepare to bid farewell to long-serving defender Nemanja Vidic, who has agreed a move to Inter Milan, while Rio Ferdinand could also be on his way out of Old Trafford. The uncertainty surrounding Old Trafford after hapless boss David Moyes’ was sacked could present a problem for the club, though, which Mourinho would look to take advantage of. Real do not want to lose the star but if an acceptable deal comes in then the La Liga giants could do business.
