The great Spanish club, Real Madrid has reduced the price required for defender Raphael Varane amid interest from Manchester United.
Varane has yet to respond to the contract offer submitted by Los Blancos before his contract expires next summer.
Real Madrid do not want to lose Varane for free next year, and they are clear that they will have to sell him if they can not bind the Frenchman to a new contract.
According to Diario AS, Real Madrid are becoming increasingly aware that Varane will not sign a new deal, and they also know that the 28-year-old’s contract situation will lower his value in the eyes of rival clubs.
With this in mind, Real Madrid has reduced their asking price from 60 million euros to 50 million.
That’s going to be music in the ears of Manchester United, who are looking for a central defender this summer.
According to The Athletic, United is said to have a concrete interest and with 50 million euros they will become the immediate favorites to complete the agreement.
However, any transfer is likely to wait until after Euro 2020 with Varane currently focused on the French national team.
If Varane leaves, he will join Sergio Ramos, who has already left the Santiago Bernabeu this summer, leaving David Alaba, Nacho Fernandez and Eder Militao as the only options at center-back.
