No contract talks ongoing between Manchester United and Raphael Varane

Manchester United has yet to initiate contract talks with Raphael Varane. Rumours of a new proposal based on appearances have not been confirmed, and no negotiations are currently underway, reports Fabrizio Romano. Varane’s contract is expiring in three months, giving him the freedom to negotiate with other clubs.

Rumours indicate Varane is open to renegotiating his deal with Manchester United, willing to lower his wages to extend his stay for another 2-3 years. The French defender has expressed no interest in moving to the Saudi league, preferring to end his career at United or, if necessary, considering a return to his two previous teams – Real Madrid and Lens.

Since joining the Red Devils in August 2021 for €40 million from Real Madrid, Varane has played a total of 91 games for Manchester United, scoring 2 goals and providing 1 assist. The only trophy he has won with the Red Devils is the League Cup in 2023. The 30-year-old defender’s trophy cabinet also includes a World Cup gold medal with France in 2018, three LaLiga titles, and four Champions League trophies, among others. The French international has been sent off just once in his entire professional career.
