Real Madrid set £54million price for Jose Mourinho’s long-term target: report

Varane Real Madrid

European champions Real Madrid could accept the potential sale of Raphael Varane at the end of the current campaign. The France international has endured an indifferent season at the Bernabeu, similarly to most of his teammates, and it appears that Los Blancos may place him in the transfer market.

According to Don Balon, Jose Mourinho could be offered the chance of a reunion with Varane whom he recruited from Lens for Real Madrid, during the summer of 2011.

The three-time Champions League winner has often spoke of his fond relationship with the Portuguese tactician, and United could pursue his signature for around €60(£54)m next summer.

Varane’s availability would no doubt attract interest from several top European clubs other than United, but the Frenchman may probably lean towards a United transfer due to Mourinho.

Nevertheless, any transfer decision may lie on the manager, who is more keen on bolstering the central midfield department in the summer with the potential departures of Michael Carrick and Marouane Fellaini.

Phil Jones and Chris Smalling have tended to show vulnerability at the heart of the backline this term, but there is still plenty of promise with Eric Bailly and Victor Lindelof considered by many as the future partnership at Old Trafford.
