Raphaël Varane is set to be one of the key players in the upcoming summer mercato. One of the reasons for this is his contractual situation. At the time of his arrival at the Red Devils, he seemed to have signed until 2025, but his contract runs only until June 2024, and with six months to go before the end of his lease in Manchester, his future appears highly uncertain.

A real asset last season, the former Lens man has had to make do with a substitute role more often than not since the summer, and now seems to be taking a back seat to Harry Maguire and the returning Jonny Evans in Erik ten Hag’s eyes. The Tricolor world championccording to the Daily Mail, John Murtough, Manchester United’s director of soccer, visited Saudi Arabia to discuss his possible signature, along with those of Jadon Sancho, Casemiro and Anthony Martial, other players in the spotlight.

But according to Cadena Cope, another club is interested in Raphaël Varane, and not the least. According to the Madrid radio station, Real Madrid have put their name down as they may be looking for a central defender to fill the gap left by the long-term absence of David Alaba, who is sidelined until next season. The Frenchman has the immense advantage of knowing Madrid well and not costing much.
