On June 24th, AS reported Real Madrid ‘await with open arms’ for Manchester United to make an approach for Raphaël Varane.
The defender will enter his final year of contract next month and AS stated the La Liga side are unable to meet the high economic demands requested by his agent to sign an extension.
Without a renewal, Los Blancos have plans to make the 28-year-old available in the market and this is again mentioned by ABC on Friday.
The newspaper provides a short update and explains the centre-back ‘has offers’ from Manchester United, Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain.
PSG are believed to be frontrunners to sign Sergio Ramos on a free transfer and Mauricio Pochettino reportedly has a desire of reuniting the Spaniard with the France international at Parc des Princes next season. That feels somewhat far fetched.
Varane is currently with his national team, preparing for France’s upcoming Euro 2020 clash against Switzerland.
The player is handling offers from Manchester United, Chelsea and PSG, but it’s not clear what his plans are for the future. Even Real Madrid president Florentino Pérez is also unsure what the former Lens man will do next.
“I read news in papers and I don’t know anything. He is at the European championship and we will deal with renewals later. I have not spoken with the player and I don’t know what he wants. If he wants to leave, he will say so. And if he wants to stay, he will say so,” Pérez said about Varane during an interview with Onda Cero.
