The reigning European champions sealed maximum points from their group stage campaign after running out comfortable winners on Tuesday night Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale struck in the first half to help give Real Madrid a 4-0 win over Ludogorets and make it six wins out of six in Champions League Group B. The defending European champions were guaranteed top spot but recorded maximum points for the second time in their history after further goals from Alvaro Arbeloa and Alvaro Medran sealed victory. Ludogorets saw Marcelinho sent off midway through the first half and missed out on the Europa League as they struggled to contain the quality of the Spanish giants. Amid early pressure from Real, Ludogorets' slim hopes of taking anything from the Santiago Bernabeu diminished with the loss of a man and a goal in quick succession. Marcelinho – on target in the reverse fixture - handled Raphael Varane's goalbound header to earn a straight red card before Ronaldo converted the penalty to move past club legen ...

Newcastle United goalkeeper Rob Elliot won his third international cap for Republic of Ireland, as they beat United States 4-1 in a friendly on Tuesday night. The stopper was a second-half substitute at the Aviva Stadium, in Dublin, replacing former Magpies hero Shay Given, and saw out the closing stages quite comfortably. Hull's Robbie Brady found the back of the net twice for the Boys in Green, while Anthony Pilkington and James McClean were also on target for Martin O'Neill's side. Mikkel Diskerud scored America's consolation. Elsewhere, Moussa Sissoko was also a replacement as France triumphed 1-0 over Sweden at Marseille's Stade Velodrome. The midfield powerhouse was introduced on 61 minutes in place of Dimitri Payet with the game goalless, and helped Les Bleus eventually seal a late win, with Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane heading the winner with six minutes remaining.

France manager, Didier Deschamps was pleased with the progress his side has shown in their 1-0 friendly win over Spain on Thursday evening at the Parc des Princes and feels the win should give Les Bleus a much needed boost of confidence. In his post-match press conference, Deschamps admitted that France had the upper hand as Spain were still testing out new players to replace those that have retired or were injured. “Everyone who started was at the World Cup and they know each other, while Spain had some new faces. You can’t change everything overnight. It is never easy when you take out the likes of Alonso, Xavi, Pique and Iniesta. They played together with their eyes closed. Del Bosque is a great coach but he’s not a magician.” Deschamps then praised his own defenders, which included new Barcelona defender, Jeremy Mathieu and Real Madrid youngster Raphael Varane. “We are a long wa ...

FOOTBALL Chelsea ready £30m bid for Man Utd target Mehdi Benatia CHELSEA are ready to make a £30million bid for Roma defender Mehdi Benatia. With less than a week to go before Chelsea’s opening Premier League game, away to Burnley on Monday night, Jose Mourinho wants to strengthen his defence with a move for the Moroccan centre-back. Benatia, 27, is also being chased by Manchester United but Chelsea are in the driving seat, with inquiries already having been made. They have switched their attention to Benatia because Real Madrid have indicated so far that French defender Raphael Varane is not for sale and with another target, Atletico Madrid star Joao Miranda, opting to stay in Spain. Mourinho has still not replaced Brazilian David Luiz, sold to Paris Saint Germain this summer for £50m and he believes that, even though he has Branislav Ivanovic and French youngster Kurt Zouma who could both fill in at centre-back if John Terry or Gary Cahill are injured, he still needs extra cover. If they push throu ...

Central defender Raphael Varane has been unhappy with his playing time and wages at Real Madrid, and a move to Chelsea could be in his future. Reuters As manager Jose Mourinho said earlier this week, possessing two of the best goalkeepers in the world in Petr Cech and Thibaut Courtois is a good problem for Chelsea to have heading into the new Premier League term. The Great One meant it more from a competition standpoint, with the Czech and 10-year Stamford Bridge netminder and budding Belgian 22-year-old pushing each other to greater heights. But now Mourinho’s phrasing has taken on new meaning, with the Blues leveraging the position battle into a possible deal for a young, top-flight defender. Mourinho has been enamored with Real Madrid central defender Raphael Varane well before he brought the French international to the Bernabeu in 2011, and now he could facilitate a move to London with Los Blancos keen on acquiring the 32-year-old Cech for their coming La Liga and Champions League runs, The Express ...

Real Madrid wonderkid Raphael Varane is demanding a new contract or else he could be forced to leave with Chelsea currently monitoring his situation, Daily Mail reports. Jose Mourinho is believed to be eyeing the French centre-back who he has already worked with during his time with the Spanish giants. He will be looking to add another defender to his ranks after the £50million departure of David Luiz to Paris Saint-Germain just before the start of the World Cup. Varane is currently receiving £25,000-a-week wages and could be looking to triple that amount in order to match those of his Madrid team mates. The 21-year-old’s representatives will meet up with the club board in the near future in order to secure a new deal for the player who is regarded as one of the best young centre-backs in Europe. Should the La Liga giants fail to meet his demands, the defender could very well be on his way to reunite with Mourinho at Stamford Bridge. An official bid will not be happening soon but should the Blues make ...
Chelsea are monitoring Raphael Varane's situation at Real Madrid. The £25m-rated Frenchman only earns £25,000-a-week and if talks over a new deal are unproductive he would consider a move to Stamford Bridge where he can expect to treble his salary.
Inside Spanish Football Inside Spanish Football – La Liga news 24/7, plus Segunda, Copa del Rey, Champions League, Europa League & the Spain national team Iñigo Martínez – Real Madrid’s ‘Plan B’? Posted by Ameen Rabbani Real Madrid have sounded out Real Sociedad centre-back Inigo Martinez as the first option to replace Raphael Varane, should the Frenchman leave the club in this summer. It has been reported that Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is interested in signing the 21-year-old and should a deal go ahead, then Real will turn their attention to Martinez, who was told of Los Blancos’ interest last December, according to Marca. The Spanish paper say Real see him as an ideal replacement and the player himself is willing to make the move to the Bernabeu but a stumbling block in a deal could be negotiating with the Basques who will hold out for the €30 million release clause. Bayern Munich and Barcelona have also been linked with the 23-year-old but Real Madrid would be favourites and have as ...

German and Argentinian players have dominated FIFA’s best player shortlist. The football governing body shortlisted ten players for the best player at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, with the Germans bagging four nominations, while Argentina took three. Full list below: Lionel Messi – Argentina Angel Di Maria – Argentina Javier Mascherano – Argentina Mat Hummels – Germany Toni Kroos – Germany Philipp Lahm – Germany Thomas Muller – Germany Neymar Jr – Brazil Arjen Robben – Netherlands James Rodriguez – Colombia Candidates for the best young player are Memphis Depay of the Netherlands, and French players Paul Pogba and Raphael Varane. The winners will be announced on Sunday, July 13, 2014 after the final clash between Argentina and Germany.
'' Mats Hummels rises above Raphael Varane to head in the opener. 1-0 "
HUMMELS HEADS GERMANY PAST FRANCE AND INTO SEMIS Mats Hummels headed Germany past France at the Maracana and into a FIFA World Cup™ semi-final at the Mineirao. The 25-year-old centre-back scored the only goal in the 13th minute, and Joachim Low’s side will now head to Belo Horizonte to face the Brazil-Colombia winners. France were first to threaten in Rio de Janeiro, with Karim Benzema’s first-time volley from Mathieu Valbuena’s clever cut-back going narrowly wide. Germany were the first to break through. Toni Kroos delivered a curling free-kick into the box, and Hummels outmuscled Raphael Varane and headed home via the underside of the crossbar. Germany bossed possession thereafter, but they had their goalkeeper to thank for keeping them ahead after 33 minutes. Antoine Griezmann produced a superb, volleyed pass to free Valbuena, in space inside the area. The diminutive midfielder took a touch and shot across goal, only for Manuel Neuer to fling himself south-west and make an excellent save. Franc ...
France 0 Germany 1 4 July 2014 By David Ornstein BBC Sport at the Maracana Germany became the first nation to reach four consecutive World Cup semi-finals as Mats Hummels' early header proved enough to see them past France at the Maracana. The three-time champions needed extra time to beat Algeria in the last 16 and suffered a bout of illness in midweek, but they were comfortable victors over a disappointing France in Rio de Janeiro. Hummels got the better of Raphael Varane to score what proved to be the winning goal and Germany can now prepare for a meeting with Brazil or Colombia in Belo Horizonte on Tuesday. Analysis Chris Waddle BBC Radio 5 live "France fell short. They looked entertaining in the group stage but were beaten by a better team, with more experience at this level, who knew how to see out the game. "Germany dominated the midfield and dictated the pace of the game, while France were well off their own pace." Although Germany goalkeeper Manuel Neuer gave another faultless performance, Joachi ...

France coach Didier Deschamps used his side’s final group stage game against Ecuador to rest a number of regular starters, yet he’s not fully without injury worries ahead of today’s second round encounter with Nigeria. Liverpool defender Mamadou Sakho escaped punishment for his elbow against the South Americans, yet seems likely to miss out on the game versus Nigeria after all due to injury. The former Paris Saint-Germain centre-back is struggling with a hamstring problem and Deschamps is unlikely to take any risks. With Laurent Koscielny recovering from an Achilles tendon injury, Eliaquim Mangala could get the nod at centre-back alongside Raphael Varane. Furthermore, Paul Pogba and Moussa Sissoko will both be hopeful of starting in midfield, with the Juventus star currently sitting in pole position to feature from the first whistle. Meanwhile, Nigeria coach Stephen Keshi has some injury problems of his own after the narrow 3-2 loss to Argentina in his side’s final group fixture. Midfielder Michae ...

Chelsea are eyeing a triple swoop on Real Madrid for Sami Khedira, Isco and Raphael Varane but will refuse to use midfielder Ramires as part of any deals
Jose Mourinho will reject any opening offer from Real Madrid for Ramires but the European champions are determined to sign the Brazilian. Chelsea have interest in various Real Madrid players and they may be offered as makeweights in a bid to tempt Mourinho who remains a firm fan of the 27-year-old midfielder.

Three quickfire goals in extra time gave Real Madrid a 4-1 win over city rivals Atletico in Lisbon Saturday to win the European Champions League for the 10th time. Diego Godin put Atletico ahead in the 36th minute and it took an injury time equalizer from Sergio Ramos to rescue Real and force the extra half hour. Atletico held out until the second half of the added time until Gareth Bale headed Real ahead after superb work by Angel Di Maria. Marcelo and Cristiano Ronaldo, with a penalty, rubbed salt into the wound for Atletico, who had been bidding for a La Liga/Champions League double. Coach Diego Simeone, unhappy at the added minutes in regulation play, summed up their frustration as he ran on to the pitch to confront referee Raphael Varane and had to be restrained by stewards. It was a sorry end to a magnificent season for Los Rojiblancos, but ultimately the quality of Real, epitomized by the world's most expensive player Bale, which prevailed. It was the Welshman's 22nd goal of the season and sixth in ...
Congratulations to Real Madrid. I don't even know where to start because am so overwhelmed though am not a Real Madrid fan but a team can't put in so much effort like this and you will refuse to suppport them. Let me start with Carlo Ancelloti, he got the tactics and starting line-up wrong but in the end he has carried the day. Sami Khedira and Fábio Coentrão were not in the game. Carlo Ancelotti could have got the sack, that's the way Real and a lot of clubs work. I'm pleased for him, he's a good manager, never blows his own trumpet, he respects people, the players like him and he's done well. He has now won three Champions League titles, a Serie A title, a Coppa Italia, a Premier League, an FA Cup, a French League, a Copa del Rey and a Club World Cup. That's incredible. Back to Simeone, he has been a frustrated soul ever since Real Madrid got their equaliser, he's lost it. Absolutely lost it. Diego Simeone ran on to the pitch to confront Raphael Varane as Real Madrid celebrate that fourth goal and the ...
Gareth Bale, Cristiano Ronaldo and Raphael Varane (ahead of Pepe) start for Real Madrid. Diego Costa starts for Atletico Madrid. Canny wait!
Chelsea to replace Luiz with Raphael Varane - why it is the wrong choice. Chelsea are being linked with the Real Madrid centre-half, but wouldn’t signing a central midfielder make more sense? Although Varane is an excellent centre-half with all the attributes to be a real star in the Blues side, Mourinho should think twice before splurging on the young Frenchman. With Kurt Zouma Stamford Bridge bound and the presence of John Terry, Gary Cahill, Branislav Ivanovic and Tomas Kalas in his squad, the Portuguese could well be overloaded at centre-half if Varane was to arrive. On the other hand, Chelsea are looking decidedly light in central midfield with the versatile Luiz and veteran Frank Lampard leaving the club. Wouldn’t the money be better spent on a top-class, international central midfielder to partner Nemanja Matic? Someone of the calibre of Toni Kroos, Paul Pogba or Koke would be a much more practical addition than Varane, and would make Chelsea’s squad much more rounded.
France squad (Getty Images) France coach Didier Deschamps has surprisingly left Manchester City midfielder Samir Nasri out of his 23-man squad for the FIFA World Cup 2014 held in Brazil. Samir Nasri who has won 41 caps for France joins club teammate Gael Clichy and Monaco captain Eric Abidal in the omission list. The former Barcelona defender Abidal has capped 67 times but will be watching the World Cup from home this time. The left-back position will be filled by Patrice Evra or PSG’s Lucas Digne. There are eight players aged under 25 in the squad, including Real Sociedad winger Antoine Griezmann and 21-year-old duo Raphael Varane of Real Madrid and Paul Pogba of Juventus. Bastia’s 34-year-old goalkeeper Mickael Landreau, who will retire from football after the finals, is the senior figure in the squad, while Paris Saint-Germain left-back Lucas Digne, 20, was preferred to Gael Clichy of Manchester City. Newcastle United forward Loic Remy, who played under Deschamps at Marseille, was selected rather t ...
World Cup UPDATE: 29 days to Brazil NASRI AND CLICHY OUT OF FRANCE'S PROVISIONAL World Cup SQUAD The midfielder has, as expected, been omitted by Didier Deschamps, with Franck Ribery, Karim Benzema and Patrice Evra all included Manchester City midfielder Samir Nasri has been left out of France's provisional World Cup squad. Nasri was widely expected to be omitted by coach Didier Deschamps, who has handed somewhat surprising places to Raphael Varane - who has been struggling for game time at Real Madrid this season - as well as young full-back Lucas Digne ahead of Gael Clichy. Franck Ribery, Karim Benzema, Patrice Evra, Paul Pogba and Yohan Cabaye are all included. Squad in full Goalkeepers: Hugo Lloris (Tottenham), Steve Mandanda (Marseille), Mickeal Landreau (Bastia) Defenders: Raphael Varane (Real Madrid ), Mamadou Sakho (Liverpool ), Mathieu Debuchy (Newcastle), Laurent Koscielny (Arsenal ), Lucas Digne (Paris), Eliaquim Mangala (Porto), Bacary Sagna (Arsenal), Patrice Evra (Manchester United) Midfield ...
Within a day of Sir Alex Ferguson being spotted sitting next to Juventus boss Antonio Conte at the Europa League final, rumours linking Manchester United to Arturo Vidal have really gathered pace. Italy’s Sports Mediaset suggested Fergie had discussed a €32m offer for Vidal and now two more names have been thrown into the hat in Barcelona and Real Madrid, who are also keen on Vidal this summer. The reports have been picked up in Spain by Sport and from United’s perspective, competing against Madrid for a player is not one of our favourite past-times in recent memory. Karim Benzema, Mesut Ozil, Luka Modric and Raphael Varane all chose Madrid over Manchester and with the potential of being European champions next year, Madrid would be an enticing prospect for any of the world’s best players. As for Barcelona, they have a chance to salvage something from a poor season when they take on Atletico Madrid this weekend as a win will see them lift the La Liga title and now that their transfer embargo has b ...

FIERCE COMPETITION IN SPANISH La Liga: (Premiership must take note) La Liga has gone leaps and bounds after what some considered a debacle last year. Two Spanish finalist in the Champions League alone speaks volumes. But the way the title is going to the wire with all three leaders and contenders Atletico Madrid, Barcelona (I do not know if dem own be Real or Athletico Barcelona) and Real Madrid all failed to win their matches today. Real got the short end of the stick by getting beaten by Celta Vigo 2-0. Celta who? I have never heard of them before (I no know book oooh). Well may be they have conceded the title and now want to conserve energy for the Champions League finals against Athletico. However, this might not be so since Cristiano Ronaldo, Angel Di Maria, Pepe, Raphael Varane and Karim Benzema are reported injured and Gareth Bale is supposed to be sick! Advantage Atletico? But Athletico only fared slightly better because they could only manage to force Malaga to a 1-1 draw which was sufficient to ...

All the stories from the morning's papers. Robben to be Van Gaal’s number one target. According to the Sun on Sunday, Louis Van Gaal is preparing his new signings at Manchester United ahead of his official coronation and winger Arjen Robben, who currently plays under him for Netherlands, is top of the list. According to the paper, “Van Gaal plans to shake up the United attack with a £25 million move for the Dutch winger. Bayern Munich are tipped to off-load Robben in the wake of their disastrous Champions League semi-final exit at the hands of Real Madrid.” Although Robben only signed a contract to 2017 worth £125,000-per week, the paper says he could earn £200,000-per week at United. Paper Round’s view: Robben was close to becoming a United player in 20 ...

Marca: Mourinho wants Raphael Varane to take place of terry this summer.
Marca have reported that Raphael Varane could join Chelsea this summer as Jose Mourinho looks to sign a new centre-back. It was under Jose Mourinho that French defender Raphael Varane first blossomed at Real Madrid, making his debut in 2011 following a move from French side Lens. 15 games in that campaign saw him instated to a more regular first team place in the following season, making 33 appearances under the guidance of Mourinho. However, this season has seen the French international make just 20 appearances so far, with the majority of those coming against weaker teams as new boss Carlo Ancelotti seems settled with Pepe and Sergio Ramos. And, it is now being reported that Varane could reunite with his former boss and close friend, Mourinho at Chelsea this summer.
As [Marca] reported this morning Jose Mourinho Wants Raphael Varane this summer, he has requested Chelsea Hierarchy to make a move for Varane. What has mourinho smoking recently ?

Daniel Carvajal, Asier Illarramendi, Isco, Alvaro Morata, Isco and Raphael Varane have all flattered to deceive this term, while the one revelation - Jese - is now sidelined Mar 29, 2014 9:00:00 AM COMMENT By Ben Hayward | Spanish Fotball Writer It's never easy being a young player at Real Madrid. This season, however, it looked as if coach Carlo Ancelotti would blend experience with youth in a two- tiered strategy aimed at both short-term success and long-term development. So far, however, it hasn't happened. Dani Carvajal, Asier Illarramendi and Isco were all brought in as summer signings and expected to make a big impact. All young and all Spanish, they were seen as men to lead a new Madrid brand alongside homegrown talents Alvaro Morata and Jese, plus last season's revelation Raphael Varane. But as the season reaches its climax with key dates in La Liga and the Champions League, plus the final of the Copa del Rey in the middle of next month, only one of those players has lived up to his potential: Jes ...

Ancelotti is unlikely to make too many changes to the team that won so handsomely in midweek, but Alvaro Arbeloa and Raphael Varane may come in to replace Dani Carvajal and Pepe in defence. Jese Rodriguez is likely to be a substitute again, given Gareth Bale’s brace at the Veltins arena. Simeone is expected to leave out-of-form duo Diego Ribas and David Villa on the bench, with the more combative Raul Garcia starting in attack alongside Diego Costa. Koke, Arda Turan and Miranda, who were rested as Atletico lost 3-0 at Osasuna last weekend, will all come back into the starting XI

MOURINHO'S FRENCH SPEAKING CONVINCED ZOUMA Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho used his ability to speak French to seal the deal for St Etienne defender Kurt Zouma. In an interview conducted by beIN SPORTS as reported by Le 10 Sport, Zouma revealed a phone call with Mourinho helped to persuade him to join the Stamford Bridge club ahead of other suitors. "Mourinho called me,he clearly told me he wanted me,&I jumped at the chance," said Zouma. "He called me at night,&he speaks French very well,I understood&responded but I had nothing prepared. "He told me to keep playing&we would keep up-to-date." Zouma agreed a 5/half yrs deal with Chelsea after St Etienne&the Blues agreed a fee. The France under-20 intn'l has remained with St Etienne&will report to Chelsea preseason training in the summer. Mourinho also sold Zouma on Chelsea by selling himself as a nurturer of talent.

Their qualification hopes on the line, France came out hard, pushing for an early opener. Ukraine managed to ride out the worst of the storm, but just when the visitors seemed to be edging back into the match a moment of lax defending allowed Mamadou Sakho to score his first ever international goal off a rebound following a free kick.

5 Chelsea players who deserve a recall Wednesday, June 26, 2013 at 8:46 AM Two Left Feet - Out Now! for the thinking football fan Even after Mourinho departed the club in 2007, it's fair to say that the opportunities given to our talented youth players in the Chelsea squad have been rather limited. The likes of Josh McEachran, Romelu Lukaku, Lucaz Piazon, Jeffrey Bruma, Patrick Van Aanholt, Gael Kakuta, Sam Hutchinson are just a handful of the players who had stints of games at first team action before they were loaned out. In spite of the rare chance given these players, we have not stepped back in the pursuit of young talented players. Mourinho's return, whose past doesn't suggest much fondness for youth, further highlights the prospects of the 27 loaned out players in the club, very few of whom are above 25. Yet, Mourinho's resolute demonstration of trust in Raphael Varane and Diego Lopez ahead of fan favourites, Casillas and Pepe at Real Madrid, indicates his willingness to use any player if only prov ...
