Manchester United want to strengthen their central defense and not for the first time, the name of Raphael Varane is on their wishlist.
As per the latest reports going on in the media, Man Utd have wanted to lure him for a long time and now, they have once again made contact to finally hire his services.
According to ABC (press view provided below), the French international, who will be out of contract next year, wants a lot of cash to agree a new deal with Real Madrid.
However, the Los Blancos are in no mood of accepting his demands and therefore, it is possible that he could leave for a fee of £59.5million (70 million euros) in the next transfer window.
The Spanish outlet have mentioned that the 27-year-old has shown no sign of eagerness to extend his stay at the Bernabeu and it will not be surprising to see him depart this summer.
ABC state that Man Utd made their first attempt to lure the Les Bleus central defender three years ago and now, they have knocked on the door to finally secure his signature. It is further clamed that Bayern Munich star David Alaba is expected to replace the 73-capped Frenchman at Real Madrid.
Varane has won 3 La Liga crowns, 3 Super Cup titles, 1 Copa Del Rey trophy, 4 European Cups and 4 Club World Cup trophies and the report suggests that he is angry that after winning so many titles with the Spanish giants, he has been criticized for a few mistakes.
The World Cup winning star has mainly been the leader of the defense under Zidane this term because skipper Sergio Ramos has missed majority of the campaign due to injury. The La Roja star has recently suffered another muscle issue that could keep him out for a month.
An established central defender like Raphael Varane could transform any backline in the world and Man Utd must take advantage of his current situation at Madrid to get his signing done.
