Varane, it’s not over yet!

The Raphaël Varane soap opera could well be one of the main threads running through the winter mercato. The Frenchman is in a strange situation at Manchester United, where Erik ten Hag has seen him play very little in recent weeks. But now the 2018 World Cup winner has found favor with his coach, who has offered him a few starts.

The Raphaël Varane soap opera could well be one of the main threads running through the winter mercato. The Frenchman is in a strange situation at Manchester United, where Erik ten Hag has seen him play very little in recent weeks. But now the 2018 World Cup winner has found favor with his coach, who has offered him a few starts.

Varane was in the starting line-up against Aston Villa on Tuesday evening, and the Red Devils came away with an important victory. This Varane’s return to the club with which he lifted the Champions League five times.

But in addition to Real, there’s also Bayern Munich. The Bavarian giants are also in need of defensive reinforcements this winter, with the upcoming departures of Kim Min-jae and Noussair Mazraoui for the African Cup of Nations. Sport reports that Varane is on Bayern’s radar this winter, and the German champions could even offer Manchester €20 million for the 31-year-old French defender.
