Sunday People newspaper has revealed that Chelsea are in the race to bring Real Madrid defender Pepe for the next season to bolstering the pack at Stamford Bridge.
The Portuguese player has been linked with move away from the club in recent times. The new Madrid gaffer, Rafael Benitez wants to promote Raphael Varane for the next season, so the Frenchman will be given a regular playing time. Varane and Pepe play similarly but the later do not suit the style of Rafael game plan.

It is a know fact that Mr. Jose Mourinho is a longtime admirer of the former Porto star, they’ve had success at Madrid and would want to re-unite with him for the next season.
