Paris Saint-Germain recently contacted Real Madrid regarding a possible transfer of Raphael Varane this summer. The capital club wants to take advantage of the situation, considering the 28-year-old has one more year left on his contract and doesn’t plan on extending.
As a result, Los Blancos find themselves backed up against a corner, either hold on and lose him for free next year or sell this summer.
If a Varane transfer materializes, Marca reports that Real Madrid would want a transfer fee of €50 million for the World Cup winner and a vital member of the France national side despite the challenging season he endured last season.
Although PSG has Marquinhos and Presnel Kimpembe at central defense, Mauricio Pochettino insists on reinforcements to the backline with reports suggesting that the Argentine tactician is open to the idea of a back three.
Nonetheless, the French giants are doing everything in their power to improve the squad and demonstrate to Kylian Mbappé that he can win the UEFA Champions League with PSG.
