On June 3rd, ABC reported the 28-year-old hasn’t signed an extension because he is handling a better proposal from Manchester United. However, there wasn’t any details of the offer made by the Old Trafford club.
Defensa Central explain the Red Devils have made the centre-back their ‘priority’ target and are ‘determined’ to acquire his services.
It’s claimed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side have shown the ‘most interest’ in the France international and are willing to offer him an ‘astronomical salary’.
The La Liga runners-up, for their part, are ready to offer a better deal on the World Cup winner’s salary, but he demands more.
The defender earns in excess of €5m annually and Real Madrid are willing to pay him €9m per season. The ex-Lens man believes he deserves similar wages to what Los Blancos offered (€10-11m net) to David Alaba.
Manchester United, who have been behind the Frenchman for months, consider him a key player to strengthen their back four.
To convince Varane, the Premier League side would be willing to offer €12m per season. Defensa Central are of the belief it won’t be difficult to convince him with this proposal.
As things stand, the talks between the Spanish giants and the Manchester club haven’t started. Real Madrid’s idea is to sell their star for €70m if he decides against signing a new deal.
Varane’s decision to leave is clear and only the ‘Carlo Ancelotti factor’ could make him ‘change his mind’.
