Manchester United hopes to strengthen the selection after this season with Real Madriddefender Raphael varane. The Frenchman is still under contract with De Koninklijke until mid-2022, which has to sell him next summer if it wants to transfer a transfer fee to the defender.
United has been following Varane’s situation for a long time, but a transfer was ruled out during the period that José Mourinho was still a trainer in Madrid. Now that Varane’s contract is nearing its end, that situation has changed. According to The Telegraph United hopes for the signature of the tall Frenchman and now has a chance.
The Telegraph argues that a departure from Varane this summer seems more likely than a departure from Sergio Ramos, whose contract expires after this season. The talks about a new contract for the Real captain are difficult.
United wanted to bring Varane to the club in 2018, but was shocked at the time by the high asking price of Real. The Mancunians therefore decided for it Harry Maguire from Leicester City. Where Real held back the boat at the time, it now seems to want to listen to United’s plans due to the financial consequences of the corona crisis.
