According to information from Marca this Saturday, Real Madrid seem ready to part ways with Raphael Varane, who has not given his leaders an answer for the contract extension offer he has. Manchester United would hold the rope to recover the French central defender, interested in a new challenge.
After a 10-year adventure at Real Madrid, Raphaël Varane seems very close to a departure. The 28-year-old center-back has been heavily announced from Manchester United’s side in recent days. According to information from Marca this Saturday, Madrid leaders are ready to sell their player.
Manchester United should soon formulate a concrete offer for the transfer of the player, as also indicated by journalist Fabrizio Romano, specializing in the transfer window. Raphaël Varane would be interested in a transfer to the Premier League. He was offered a contract until June 2026 from Manchester United. The France international is expected to agree to sign up for Manchester, once Real Madrid find common ground with the Red Devils. The player is estimated at 70 million euros.
Chelsea in the race
Raphaël Varane did not give an answer to Madrid leaders for a contract extension, which ends in June 2022. In view of the club’s economic situation, Real Madrid cannot take the risk of leaving the player free to l next summer, especially since it has a good market value. The economic situation of the Madrid club is also complicated due to the financial situation. A sale would relieve Madrid’s finances.
According to Marca, Chelsea are also in the race to get Varane back, but appear to be a step behind Manchester United. After having already lost Sergio Ramos in recent days, who has joined PSG free, Real Madrid is therefore preparing to release another defender. As a reminder, David Alaba has already signed at the club to compensate for the departure of the Spanish defender.
