Real Madrid star wants PSG move

World News

A certain Real Madrid star is reportedly ready to snub Manchester United as he is eyeing a move to the French capital instead.

After 10 years at Los Blancos, Raphael Varane is said to have rejected Real's attempts at a contract renewal, with the 28-year-old defender wanting to join Paris Saint-Germain, per El Confidencial.

Recently, Manchester United have been strongly linked as potential suitors for the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner, but their chances have been dealt a blow as Varane now looks likely to be a PSG player next season.

According to The Express, if the Spanish giants were to sell, they want £51.5 million (R998 million) for his services and will "not fall below" £42.9 million (R832 million).

Further reports suggest that the Red Devils' executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward was reportedly willing to sanction a £100 million (R1.9 billion) move for the defender after France's triumph in Russia in 2018.

Along with the arrival of David Alaba, Los Blancos have reportedly lined up several options for Varane's replacement, with the likes of Jules Kounde, Aymeric Laporte, and Pau Torres being considered.

The French centre-back made 31 LaLiga appearances last season, and featured nine times in the UEFA Champions League too.
