Raphael Varane may finally leave La Liga giants Real Madrid and his next destination could be Manchester United.
Last weekend, The People reported that the French international is hoping to agree a move to the Red Devils in the summer transfer window. As per the latest reports going on in the media, he wants a mammoth new contract to complete the move.
According to The Independent, Varane is ready to join Man Utd if they are willing to offer him an enormous contract worth £400,000-a-week.
The famous British outlet have claimed that the Les Bleus defender wants to leave the Bernabeu outfit for Old Trafford because he thinks that after 10 years in the Spanish capital, it is now time for a new experience.
The 28-year-old will be out of contract in 12 months and obviously, the Los Blancos would not want to lose him for free in 2022. As per a recent report covered by The Athletic, the 13-time European Champions could sell their superstar central defender for a fee of £45million.
In all fairness, the above mentioned price is very low (in today’s inflated market) for someone who has won major prizes for both the club and country.
Currently, Varane is earning a very low salary of £90,000-a-week and Man Utd have already tabled an offer that will make the Frenchman earn £200,000-a-week i.e 12 million euros a year (Mundo Deportivo). However, as mentioned by the Independent, the former Lens defender is pressing to agree a deal worth £400,000-a-week. So, he wants Man Utd to double their contract offer.
At Old Trafford, the current highest earner is David De Gea, who takes home £350,000-a-week (The Guardian). In your view, should Man Utd double the offer and make Raphael Varane their highest paid player to sign him?
