Raphael Varane appears to be edging ever closer to calling it quits at Real Madrid in the summer transfer window. Man United seem to be his next destination, with the PL heavyweights ready to offer him a €12m-a-year deal.
France international is completing a decade with Real Madrid this month, and during that period, he has gone on to establish himself as one of the best defenders of his generation. Varane has also already enjoyed quite an illustrious career, having won every single trophy at club level with Real Madrid while also lifting FIFA World Cup in 2018.
To date, Raphael has amassed 360 appearances for the Los Blancos, even chipping in with 17 goals and seven assists along the way. However, heading into the summer transfer window, his future is up in the air, as he seeks a new challenge in his career and is snubbing a new La Liga giants deal as a result.
And, willing to offer him that next adventure are Red Devils. Man United hold a long-standing interest in the 28-year-old defender, having previously attempted and failed to secure his services.
That has not done anything to keep Man United away, though, and this summer could well give them their best chance to snap up the French centre-back, who can also offer them the best years of his career.
To swoop Raphael away from Real Madrid, Man United seem to be pulling out all the stops as well. The report suggests that the English giants are prepared to offer Varane an astonishing €12m-a-year deal, which surpasses the contract offer from Real Madrid.
