The Real Madrid administration headed by Florentino Perez has made its final decision regarding the way in which defender Rafael Varane will be dealt with in the current summer Mercato.
Varane’s contract at the Santiago Bernabeu expires at the end of next season, which makes him the right to negotiate with any club next January, with a free transfer wherever he wants in the summer of 2022.
Real Madrid had already made an offer for the player to renew, but the surprise was that the French international did not respond either positively or negatively, which was considered an indication of his desire to leave.
According to the Spanish network, ABC, the management of the Royal Club will not allow Varane to leave for free next summer, meaning that it will sell him this summer in the event that he refuses to renew.
Varane and his agent’s plan was to wait this year in Madrid and then leave for free to get a big transfer bonus, just like David Alaba’s case with Bayern Munich.
But the Peres administration is well aware of this plan, and in light of the current economic crisis, it is trying by all means to earn money to help it overcome the ordeal, so it will never allow Varane to repeat the Alaba scenario.
On this basis, in the event that Varane does not agree to renew officially, the Real Madrid administration will offer it in the current summer market as soon as the European Nations Cup ends.
The value that the French player is expected to bring to Real Madrid’s coffers will not be less than 70 million euros, and he is now receiving a very huge interest from Manchester United in particular.
It is worth noting that Varane’s departure will mean the need to sign another defender (mostly Pau Torres or Jules Conde) or, in the worst case, return Vallejo from loan to the neighbors of Militao and Nacho.
