English newspapers revealed today that the Spanish clubs Real Madrid and Manchester United have reached an agreement in principle to transfer the first French international defender Raphael Varane to the second, noting that the value of the deal will be up to 50 million euros. Varane’s contract with the Royal Club expires on June 30, 2022, but the French defender expressed his unwillingness to renew his contract and go through a new experience with another club.
And the newspapers reported that Varane will receive a wage of 12 million euros, compared to the 6.5 million he spent at Real Madrid. Varane, who won the World Cup with the “Rooster” team in 2018, has great experience, and a triumphant record in the ranks of Real Madrid, where he was crowned champion of the European Champions League 4 times, in addition to many local titles.
It is most likely that the biggest loser of Varane’s transfer to the ranks of the “Red Devils” is the Swedish defender Victor Lindelof, because the Frenchman will be the partner of the giant defender Harry Maguire in this line. And Manchester had made a big deal by contracting with the English international winger Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund in a deal amounting to 73 million pounds (about 87 million euros) that was officially announced last week, before announcing at a later time the extension of the contract of his current Norwegian coach Ole. Gunnar Solskjaer for an additional three years (until 2024), with the option to renew for an additional year.
Varane will travel to Manchester this week in order to undergo a medical examination in preparation for his official transfer on a four-year contract until June 2025, with the possibility of renewing it for an additional year. Manchester United includes two French players, midfielder Paul Pogba and striker Anthony Martial.
