Real Madrid will play on several fronts next summer in the transfer market. And in particular on that of defense. This site has also been open for many months with discussions to try to convince Sergio Ramos to extend his lease which ends next June. The possibility of a departure from the captain takes on a little more depth every day as the two positions struggle to come together and the competition is sharpening its weapons to make the eyes soft on the old Sevillian.
According to Marca, uncertainty also hangs over his friend at the central hinge: Raphaël Varane (27). At the end of the contract in 2022, the Frenchman also warns Madrid leaders. The latter indeed fear that the former Lensois does not wish to extend his lease to consider a new adventure at the end of it. The hypothesis of seeing him go free does not enter into their reflection. They are therefore waiting for a sign from the French international in the coming weeks to understand his intentions.
Theirs would be very clear. If Varane does not plan to continue beyond 2022, they will be in favor of a departure next summer for a big check. But the club is not there yet and keeps the firm intention of extending the contract of the one who joined the club almost ten years ago (in the summer of 2011).

His profile, his experience and his track record make him a rare pearl on the market and Real is not decided to part with it. Florentino Perez’s club already seems to be on track to strengthen in the sector with the expected arrival of David Alaba. But the dreaded departure of Sergio Ramos and the poor performance of Eder Militao could convince them to strengthen further in this sector. All with Varane in the shoes of the leader. But everything will depend on the intentions of the 2018 world champion.
