Raphaël Varane’s future at Real Madrid remains uncertain as the centre-back has a year left on his contract and has so far not agreed to sign an extension.
Manchester United have been regularly named as one of the main suitors for the 28-year-old.
Two days ago, we covered claims made by Sport that the defender is ‘on the shortlist’ of the Red Devils, Manchester City and Liverpool. It was also stated he fancies a move to the Premier League.
Foot Mercato now explain the France international is ‘closely followed’ by the Old Trafford club, Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain. The player, however, remains ‘elusive’ about his future.
According to the claims, the former Lens man could sign a new deal with the Spanish capital club, if he receives a rise in his salary. He currently earns a ‘little more than’ €9m per season.
For a renewal, the two parties must find an agreement quickly, in order to avoid seeing the World Cup winner leave the club as a free agent in 2022.
Didier Deschamps has included Varane in Les Bleus squad for Euro 2020. The Real Madrid man spoke to the reporters on Thursday, and was asked about his future.
Responding to that, Varane said: “This is not the time to talk about my future, I am focused on the selection, on this Euro, it is normal and logical to ask the question and for my part it is normal and logical to focus on the upcoming deadlines.
“We are all human beings. We can think about it. As for my personal case, I am focused on the objectives that we have in the France team, it is not a subject that I will discuss every day in my room at Clairefontaine.
“I am focused on my goal, and now is not the time to discuss it. If I have to talk about it, it will be directly with the people concerned.”
