Varane To Leave Manchester United At End Of Season

Manchester United has announced that Raphaël Varane will depart from Old Trafford at the season’s end after three years with the club. Varane, who arrived in a £40 million ($50.2m) deal from Real Madrid in 2021, has amassed 93 appearances during his tenure. Despite being a cornerstone in Erik ten Hag’s team last season, aiding in a third-place Premier League finish and Carabao Cup victory, Varane has grappled with injuries this term, sidelining him since the April 4 clash against Chelsea.

Though Ten Hag consistently suggested Varane’s potential involvement in the FA Cup final against Manchester City on May 25, United opted against extending his contract by one year, which would have kept him at the club until 2025. The 31-year-old, renowned for his Champions League success during his decade-long stint at Real Madrid, is now rumored to be considering a move to Saudi Arabia or a return to former club Lens.

Sources revealed to ESPN that United is eyeing a new center-back in the upcoming summer transfer window. Among the potential candidates, Fulham’s Tosin Adarabioyo, available on a free transfer, has captured their interest. However, Newcastle United seems to be leading the pursuit for his signature.

Varane expressed his gratitude to Manchester United supporters via social media, acknowledging the profound impact of playing for the club. Despite the challenges of the past season, he remains optimistic about the club’s future under new ownership, which promises a clear plan and a robust strategy. Varane looks forward to bidding farewell to the Old Trafford faithful during the last home game of the season.
