Man Utd encouraged as Real Madrid preparing to sell Varane

Real Madrid are preparing to sell Raphael Varane this summer.

Real Madrid will sell Varane this summer if he does not renew his contract, says the Daily Mail. They know he'll be tough to replace but they cannot afford to lose him on a free in 2022.

The French defender, who will be 28 this April, is in his prime after arriving at the club in 2011.

He has held together the defence in the absence of the injured Sergio Ramos, helping to keep them in the title race and making them favourites to go through in the Champions League.

Manchester United are reportedly monitoring his developments closely with the defender valued at over £60m by Real.
