Arrived in 2011 from RC Lens against a check for 10 million euros, Raphael Varane could leave the real Madrid this summer. Eager to afford a new world-class central defender, PSG could welcome the 28-year-old.
PSG took the temperature for Raphaël Varane
After the already official arrival of Georginio wijnaldum and that practically acquired from Gianluigi Donnarumma, Paris Saint-Germain does not intend to stop there. As announced by its president Nasser Al-Khelaïfi, the capital club will considerably strengthen its workforce in view of the battles to come. Especially in the Champions League. Looking for new defensive reinforcement to compensate for the departure of Thiago Silva, the vice-champion of France has positioned himself to recover Raphaël Varane this summer.
One year from the end of his engagement with Real Madrid, the French international has not renewed his lease and Florentino Pérez does not rule out putting it on the market. According to site information Foot Mercato, Leonardo and Nasser Al-Khelaïfi have even approached the entourage of the former protégé of Zinédine Zidane. Still to believe the sports media, the Parisian sports director is preparing to get down to business in this case, since the Madrid club has set its requirements for a possible transfer of Raphaël Varane.
Raphaël Varane at PSG for 60M €?
At the end of his contract in June 2022, the former central defender of RC Lens is in full reflection on his future after ten years spent in the jersey of Real Madrid, a club with which he has won everything. In particular four Champions Leagues (2014, 2016, 2017 and 2018). Eager to offer himself a new challenge, the native of Lille has so far rejected all the extension offers submitted by his management.
An opening that the Paris SG would like to exploit to recruit Varane this summer. Real Madrid do not necessarily say no, but expect in return a check of at least 60 million euros. Parisian leaders will also have to beat the English competition from Chelsea and Manchester United in this case.
