Once the players would wait impatiently for Real's call, and immediately accept, now individuals are almost running away from Madrid. Something is definitely wrong at the "Santiago Bernabeu" stadium, in a few weeks the legendary coach (Zinedine Zidane) and captain (Sergio Ramos) left the club, and it seems that Rafael Varane will follow in their footsteps.
According to the media from Spain, the French national team player rejected two offers from the royal club for the extension of cooperation. Cadena SER does not state which offers were on the table but points out that in both cases when the question was raised by the leader, Varane's answer was negative.
Reportedly, the 28-year-old central defender wants to change the environment, he believes that he did everything in Madrid. He complained that he had no motive. In a way, it is true, because since 2011, when he was brought from Lens, he has won three Primera, four Champions Leagues, three cups of the Spanish, Super Cup, and the European Super Cup, as well as four FIFA World Cup titles for clubs.
He is fed up. Again, he plays for the biggest club in the world. The question is whether it can be more challenging. Varane thinks it can be. Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain are mentioned as the only two real candidates for his signature, with the French club already being marked as a potential next destination for Sergio Ramos.
The fact that Varane is entering the last year of his contract and does not want to sign a new one clearly shows that he does not see a future in Madrid and that he practically insists on a transfer. The only question is at what price.
If Varane leaves, the returnee to the bench, Carlo Ancelotti will have Eder Militao and Nacho Fernandez at the disposal on the position of the central defender. We have to mention that David Alaba from Bayern has been hired with the task of replacing Ramos, while according to the new scenario he would have a chance to fight for Jesus Vallejo, who spent last season on loan in Granada, suddenly got a place in the team.
Varane was often under critics last season, but also previous ones. Although, which defender is not under criticism today except Van Dijk and a couple of them? With his experience and knowledge, he would be of great help to PSG in the campaign for the Champions League trophy.
Manchester United also need such a player, as the defense is their main problem. Varane's decision will be interesting
