Real Madrid star Raphaël Varane has a contract expiring in 2022 and has so far not signed an extension, prompting links with a move away from the Spanish capital club.

Manchester United have been regularly named as a main suitor for the defender, and it would make sense, since the Red Devils are in the market for a new centre-back.

Los Blancos appointed Carlo Ancelotti as their new manager on Tuesday, and a day later, AS explained the former Everton coach has ‘many tasks pending’.

Among them is to resolve the 28-year-old’s future, and he ‘has offers’ from the Old Trafford club and Paris Saint-Germain. It wasn’t made clear if the offer was made to the France international or to the La Liga giants.

Today’s edition of ABC provides more clarification on that front. 

It’s claimed the World Cup winner doesn’t show any intention to sign a new deal with Real Madrid because he has a ‘proposal’ from Manchester United.

The offer from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side ‘pays him much more money’ for five seasons.

As explained before, the newspaper once again reiterates Varane ‘will be transferred’ for €70m this summer if there’s no agreement over a new contract.

It remains to be seen whether Manchester United will pay €70m to sign Varane.
