Manchester United Set Asking Price For Highly Experienced Defender
Despite a commendable performance in the previous season, the French center-back appears to have fallen out of favor in the impending reconstruction under the stewardship of Erik Ten Hag.
Sources suggest that, in preparation for the arrival of Sir Jim Ratcliffe, the Red Devils are gearing up for yet another transformative phase.
Varane, who was acquired from Real Madrid in 2021, is now deemed surplus to requirements, prompting the club to actively seek potential suitors. According to information from Florian Plettenberg of Sky Sports Germany, Manchester United has affixed a valuation ranging between £17 million and £26 million for the 30-year-old.
As this situation unfolds, Bayern Munich is reportedly keeping a close eye on Varane’s status at Old Trafford. Simultaneously, United is exploring options to reinforce its defensive line, with links to Jean-Clair Todibo from Nice and Goncalo Inacio from Sporting Lisbon as potential replacements.
In his two-year stint at Old Trafford, Varane, who currently has 18 months remaining on his contract, has been directly involved in three goals across 75 appearances in various competitions. The impending transfer window is poised to bring significant changes to Manchester United’s squad dynamics, and the developments surrounding Varane underscore the strategic recalibration underway at the club.
