Manchester United have agreed personal terms with Real Madrid defender Rafael Varane, but a deal has been agreed. The two clubs have yet to agree on a transfer fee, and the Premier League team could be forced to cough up more money than they initially wanted to spend.
The French defender has so far opposed any move by Real Madrid to extend his contract. Following the possible move to Paris Saint-Germain, it has been reported that a consensus has been reached between the player and the club, who are in the Premier League through Manchester United.
However, negotiations between the Red Devils and the La Liga giants have not been smooth. The Spanish club is unwilling to give up the move, and will only approve the move for a reasonable fee. The main reason he can be persuaded to leave this summer is that he can avoid losing it on a free transfer at the end of the season.
As far as Real Madrid are concerned, if they want to leave for France, their fee should not be less than 50 million euros (.8 42.8 million). It will be a massive return on investment for Real, who paid only 10 million euros a decade ago when they signed the Frenchman Lens.
Manchester United know the player has just one year left on his contract, and could take advantage of this summer to force Real Madrid to cash in. There is also a decision to be made. He has refused to accept the extension, but he also allows his agreement to be terminated. According to Brand, He is looking forward to dealing with Los Blank’s offer from Manchester United, which is better than the terms of the previous offer.
However, it is expected that Warren will be in pre-season training this week with new manager Carlo Ancelotti. Until his future is decided, the manager will treat him like a Real Madrid player. However, Ancelotti knows that it is very likely that the 28-year-old will not be able to be part of his squad when the season officially begins.
