Rio Ferdinand questions fees paid for David Luiz, Eliaquim Mangala

Rio Ferdinand questions fees paid for defenders in the modern game, asking how much Raphael Varane would cost.

Rio Ferdinand has commented on speculation linking Chelsea to Real Madrid centre-back Raphael Varane.

The 21-year-old France star has caught Jose Mourinho's eye as the Blues boss looks to strengthen his backline, the Daily Star reports.

Chelsea have yet to replace David Luiz, who joined Paris Saint-Germain for £50m, and Varane is said to be on the Stamford Bridge radar.

However, Manchester United legend Ferdinand, who signed for QPR in the summer, has put his own valuation on the player.
