Except for a last minute turnaround, Gianluigi Donnarumma will engage with PSG in the hours or days to come. Raphael Varane, Real Madrid’s central defender, could then follow the Italian goalkeeper to the French capital.
Real Madrid are already preparing the succession of Raphaël Varane
One year from the end of his contract, Raphael Varane is heading more and more towards a departure from Real Madrid. According to information from the Spanish and English media, the French international refused a last extension offer submitted by his management. After ten seasons spent in La Liga under the same Madrid jersey and having won everything with the Merengues, the former defender of RC Lens thinks he has made the rounds to Real and is thinking of offering himself a new challenge.
The Spanish press today confirms the trend of a non-extension of the player, which ultimately forces Real Madrid to sell him this summer to recover a transfer fee. Moreover, the American sports channel ESPN adds that the leaders of Madrid have made Jules Koundé, under contract with Sevilla FC until 2024, the big favorite to succeed his compatriot in the squad of Carlo Ancelotti. For his part, Varane already knows where he wants to go if he leaves the White House.
PSG mercato: Raphaël Varane wants to return to France
Announced in the sights of Manchester United, the 2018 world champion does not seem to be interested in an adventure in the Premier League. According to Mirror, Raphael Varane rejected a nice offer from Manchester United. Information confirmed in Spain by the Mundo Deportivo which specifies that the trend is for a return to France for Varane. Still according to the same source, the native of Lille would welcome a transfer to Paris Saint-Germain. Leonardo has even already approached Real Madrid to try to find an agreement in this matter.
As a reminder, Real Madrid are demanding an amount between 50 and 60 million euros to let Varane go. Failing to have failed to convince Sergio Ramos, PSG is therefore preparing to welcome the partner of Presnel Kimpembe in the central hinge of the Blues.
