Benzema: "Varane to Chelsea? I believe he will stay with us"

Shaun Botterill

There have been rumors about Varane joining Chelsea this summer, but Karim Benzema, his best friend on Real's roster, believes he will stay with Real Madrid.

It would surely be better to hear it from Varane himself. But it's been Karim Benzema the one that has spoken about Varane's near future. On an interview given to Marca, Karim Benzema shared his thoughts about Varane, one of his closest friends on Real Madrid's dressing room.

If he keeps playing like this, in one or two years he'll be one of the world's greatest center backs. Chelsea? I believe he will stay with us.

That's right. Even though Varane might not be that comfortable with his role on the squad, he needs to aknowledge that Pepe and Ramos have been great this season. Furthermore, he looked rusty off his knee injury and it wasn't until the very last few months that he improved his form. Varane is a great player already, but he's also very young and needs to learn the game. When Pepe retires, he will be the one undisputed center back who carries the torch alongside Sergio Ramos.
