Real Madrid to consider selling Raphael Varane as contract winds down

Real Madrid believe they may have to sell centre-back Raphael Varane this summer amid fears the Frenchman will not extend his contract.

Los Blancos have been working tirelessly on contract renewals for the likes of Luka Modric and Sergio Ramos, and so Varane’s contract situation has flown under the radar somewhat. He will have just 12 months left on his deal at the end of the season and is yet to indicate whether he plans on staying or not.

That hesitation has left Real chiefs concerned as Marca note that the general belief is that Varane does not want to extend his stay at the Santiago Bernabeu, with the Frenchman rumoured to be keen to move on after ten years at the club.

Real will try to convince Varane to renew his deal in the coming weeks, but if he chooses not to, he will find himself on the transfer list this summer before he is able to walk away for free in 2022.

As a 27-year-old who was won everything there is to win at both club and international level, there will likely be no shortage of suitors for Varane.
