Real Madrid star in assured response to rumours of €100m Man Utd move

Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane has responded to speculation linking him with a move to Manchester United by claiming he is happy where he is.

United boss Ole Gunner Solskjaer is reportedly ready to oversee a major overhaul of his squad at the end of the season, after the Red Devils missed out on Champions League football, and defence is believed to be a major area that he is looking to upgrade.

Varane has been mentioned as a defensive target for United, but it has also been suggested that they would need to break the bank for the 25-year-old.

The player himself has now issued a firm response to the rumours by insisting he is happy in the Spanish capital.

“I want to continue in Madrid next year, I am sure that we will have strong emotions again and I am sure that the season will be very good,” Varane told Marca.

“I think I reach an age of cross between youth and experience and I hope that the next season will be the best Varane of my career and with the shirt of Madrid.

‘I’m going to have a break that I have not had for a long time and I’m going to do a full pre-season.

“I think Zizou is a coach who can make me even better and I hope he sees the best Varane very soon.”

Varane also admitted that Paul Pogba would be welcome at the Santiago Bernabeu.

“What I talk to him about I cannot say, but any great player has a place in Madrid and he is one of them,” said Varane.

“In Madrid there is a lot of competition, it is a possibility, there is a lot of noise around and we will see in August where he is.”
