After ten seasons spent in the Real Madrid jersey, Raphael Varane is he ready for a change of scenery this summer? In any case, PSG has approached the entourage of the central defender of the Madrid club.
PSG mercato: Raphaël Varane towards a departure from Real Madrid?
“This is not the time to talk about my future, I am focused on the selection, on this Euro, it is normal and logical to ask the question and for my part it is normal and logical to focus on the upcoming deadlines. We are all human beings. We can think about it. As for my personal case, I am focused on the objectives that we have in the France team, it is not a subject that I will discuss every day in my room at Clairefontaine. I am focused on my goal, and now is not the time to discuss it. If I have to talk about it, it will be directly with the people concerned ”, declared recently Raphael Varane at a press conference in Clairefontaine.
If he does not intend to clearly address the question of his future, Raphael Varane is heading straight for a Real Madrid departure this summer. According to information from the daily AS, the management of the Madrid club has resolved to place the French international on the market after his refusal to extend his lease which expires in a year. Not wishing to see him go away for free in twelve months, Florentino Pérez is therefore listening to offers for the former defender of RC Lens. And that’s good because Paris Saint-Germain is interested in the profile of the 2018 world champion.
PSG made an offer for Raphaël Varane
Besides Sergio Ramos, Real Madrid could also lose Raphael Varane this summer. The native of Lille has refused all renewal offers since he intends to take advantage of his contractual situation to obtain a significant salary increase. A requirement to which Pérez refuses to comply. But not Paris Saint-Germain. Indeed, according to the famous Spanish show El Chiringuito, Nasser Al-Khelaïfi has already slipped a great proposal to Real Madrid for Raphaël Varane.
Willing to let the 28-year-old go, the vice-champion of Spain is however waiting for an envelope of at least 60 million euros to sign his exit ticket. As a reminder, in addition to Paris SG, Chelsea and Manchester United are also positioned in the footsteps of the quadruple European champion (2014, 2016, 2017 and 2018). It remains to be seen whether PSG will be able to conclude this file.
