Trying to avoid the risk of losing France international for free, Real Madrid reportedly lowered their asking price for letting the 28-year-old defender leave the club to €50million from €60million.
The Red Devils have been linked with the Real Madrid centre-back all summer, and now United set to make a formal bid in the next few days as the Los Blancos have given up hope of renewing the Frenchman’s contract.
The radio program, El Transistor onOnda Cero
,broke the news by tweeting
‘VARANE is going to MANCHESTER UNITED.
‘He is not working on renewing [with Real].
‘The agency that represents the Frenchman is in negotiations with the United.
‘The offer from United will arrive in the next days.’
In addition,Mundo Deportivo
covered the news in a new report stating: ‘
It seems, the option of renewal is almost ruled out [for Real Madrid].
‘This is where Manchester United comes in, a club that Varane has among his priorities and offers €50 million [£43m] in the knowledge that, in due course, the Frenchman will be free.
‘However, Real Madrid are asking for more, about €70m [£60m], to recover the investment of all these years in the centre-back.
‘Los Blancos are studying the market and the names are varied: Koundé and Pau Torres appear as present-future options and others such as Laporte or Koulibaly offer a more present role.’
