Rumour is spreading everywhere in the football world and France international Raphael Varane will be out of contract at Real Madrid in the summer of 2022, and this appears that he doesn’t want to renew contract with Laliga giants.
However, Zidane will preferably retain the 27-year-old defender and lock him down to a new big-money contract.
But Real Madrid are in danger of losing the centre-back on a free, and as a result, are opening up to the idea of selling Varane this summer in order to receive a transfer fee for him.

The Red Devils have identified Varane as an ideal candidate and as they are in the market for a new centre-back.
The executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward has promised funds will be made available at the end of the season since it has really been quite for Man United in the January transfer window.
He said: “We will continue to support Ole with a planned, long-term approach to recruitment, focused on the summer windows,”
