Manchester City are monitoring the progress of 19-year-old Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane, according to reports.

Manchester City have reportedly joined the race to sign highly-rated Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane.

The versatile 19-year-old, who can play at centre-back or in a holding midfield role, has flourished when selected for a struggling Los Blancos side this season.

Several of Europe's elite clubs, including Paris Saint-Germain, are rumoured to be monitoring the teenage Frenchman.

According to The Express, City are also tracking Varane as a potential replacement for Joleon Lescott, who seems likely to leave Eastlands in the summer.

Varane has made 14 appearances for Madrid under Jose Mourinho this campaign.
