Manchester United Raphael Varane transfer puts pressure on Chelsea
Here we are in late July and Chelsea FC fans are a bit worried that the club is yet to make any significant moves in the transfer window. Of course, that would all change in a second if the reigning Champions League title holders bring in Erling Haaland.
Until something big happens, however, people will continue to talk about the big-time moves being made elsewhere. This includes out of Old Trafford. On Monday, it has been reported that Manchester United has landed star center back Raphael Varane from Real Madrid. Whoa.

With Varane now on board for the Red Devils, this adds to the amazing window United is having thus far. Just last week, the club also made things official by announcing the Jadon Sancho move.
To add Sancho is one thing, but then to not waste much time and also bring in Varane is quite the message. It's clear that the United higher-ups are ready to push for a league title.
In recent years, they've completely revamped the lineup and brought it plenty of star power. The same can be said for Chelsea, which had Timo Werner, Christian Pulisic, Edouard Mendy, Kai Havertz and other additions make a massive impact on things last year.
Chelsea wasn't expected to win the Champions League, but they did so with a brilliant run, highlighted by the stunning win over Manchester City. It's something Chelsea FC fans still talk about to this day.
As great as that was, though, the Blues supporters want to see this club get back in the Premier League title hunt as well. In order for that to happen, they'll need to be aggressive and add some players this window. If they don't, people are just going to bring up how great of a job United did, while Chelsea sat on its hands a bit.
