In a discussion on social media, Ferdinand confessed to writing to Varane to convince him to sign for Manchester United.
The players of the France team were to be talked about during the summer thanks to a resounding success at Euro 2020 of which they were the favorites. This is what all the supporters of the Blues were hoping at the time of the announcement of the list of 26 selected.
Finally, they did well talk about them but not in the direction hoped for with this elimination from the round of 16 against Switzerland. But, even outside the continental tournament, the Blues continue to be talked about and especially on the transfer market.
There is the still undecided future of Kylian Mbappé at PSG, the new rumor of Antoine Griezmann’s departure from FC Barcelona and also the questioning of Raphaël Varane’s future at Real Madrid.
At the end of the contract in a year, the French central defender has still not extended with the Merengue. Discussions took place between the two parties without this leading to an agreement. At 28, Varane knows he is at a turning point in his career.
In the Madrid club for ten years, he won everything but gives the feeling of stagnating for two seasons. Can the departure of Sergio Ramos allow him to change his posture within Real Madrid? The question arises, just like that of a departure.
Since his first professional steps, Varane has been linked directly or indirectly to Manchester United and his contractual situation has obviously revived rumors of an arrival in the Premier League. Despite the good season of the Maguire – Lindelof pair, the Red Devils have positioned themselves on the record of the French international, also guilty of a half-hearted Euro 2020.
In order to finish convincing the former Lensois that a departure from Real Madrid is the necessary boost to his career, the Mancunian club can count on the contribution of his former glory.
During a series of questions and answers on social networks, Rio Ferdinand was asked about a possible arrival of Varane. The former defensive boss of the Red Devils did not go back four ways: he wants to see the Frenchman in the north of England and even wrote to him when a net surfer asked him if he would do it to convince Varane.
To which he replied: “It’s already done”. What to put a little more doubt in the mind of Varane, who now knows he is more than desired in Manchester.
