Chelsea morning round-up: Blues plot move for Varane, Khedira heading to Germany

A round up of news stories this morning related to Chelsea.

The Daily Express claims Chelsea are plotting a bid for Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane.

The paper states the Blues could make a move with Gary Cahill struggling to find his best form at the club.

Varane worked under Mourinho when the Blues boss was head coach at the Bernabeu creating an obvious connection between the pair should Mourinho decide he wants to make a move.

The Daily Express claims German midfielder Sami Khedira has agreed a deal to join Bayern Munich.

The Real Madrid star is mentioned in the report as a target for Chelsea, because of Jose Mourinho’s connection to the Spanish giants.

He will reportedly move to Germany at the end of the season as a free agent.

Juan Cuadrado has told the Daily Star it’s an honour to be working with Jose Mourinho at Chelsea.

The winger moved to the club in a deadline day deal from Serie A side Fiorentina, with Mohamad Salah heading in the opposite direction.

The Colombian says he’s proud to be playing for the Portuguese coach.
