While the French newspaper “L’Equipe” explained, “Florentino Perez, the president of Real Madrid, wanted 60 million euros to leave Varane, but Manchester United offered 45 million euros with additions, and the deal may take place in exchange for this offer.”
The newspaper stated, “The contract with Austrian David Alaba was one of the reasons for Varane’s departure, as he receives almost twice the salary of the French star, and in Madrid they did not agree to increase his salary as he wanted.”
Other reports revealed that “the player has already made travel arrangements for Manchester United in preparation for his transfer to them.”
Varane was waiting for Real Madrid to agree to his departure, especially as he is looking for new challenges in his career, after years of success and titles at the Santiago Bernabeu.
And the newspaper “Marca” reported yesterday that the two clubs had already reached an agreement regarding Varane, who is scheduled to sign a four- or five-year contract with United.
Varane moved to Real Madrid in 2011 from Lens, France.
Varane played 360 games with Real Madrid in all competitions, winning the Spanish League 3 times in addition to 4 European Champions League titles.
Varane bid farewell to the European Nations Cup “Euro 2020”, accompanied by France, from the final price after losing to Switzerland on penalties.
