Varane, it’s not over yet!

In an uncertain situation at Manchester United, Raphaël Varane could return to Real Madrid this winter. But Bayern Munich is also in the running.

The Raphaël Varane soap opera could well be one of the main threads of this winter transfer window. The Frenchman is in a strange situation at Manchester United, where Erik ten Hag has played him very little in recent weeks. But now the 2018 world champion has found favor in the eyes of his coach, who offered him a few starts.

Varane was in the starting lineup against Aston Villa on Tuesday evening, with an important victory for the Red Devils. This could give a positive trend, and give the former Lensois reason to hope for a good end to the season in England. But his uncertain situation had alerted some major clubs in Europe.

After Real, Bayern for Varane

First, there was Real Madrid, who are looking for an experienced central defender to compensate for their cascade of injuries. After Eder Militao, it was David Alaba who seriously injured his knee, which opened the door to a big return for Varane to the club with which he lifted the Champions League five times.

But in addition to Real, there is Bayern Munich. The Bavarian giant also needs reinforcement in defense for this winter, with the upcoming departures of Kim Min-jae and Noussair Mazraoui for the Africa Cup of Nations. Sport thus indicates that Varane is on Bayern’s shelves for this winter, and the German champions could even offer 20 million euros to Manchester to recover the 31-year-old French defender.
