Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane reportedly prefers a move to Liverpool over Manchester United.
The Frenchman will enter the final year of his contract with Los Blancos after the current season. However, talks of a possible contract renewal have hit a dead end, and the centre-back is ready to leave the Spanish giants.
Both Liverpool and Manchester United have been on the lookout for a central defender. Varane, with all the experience and silverware under his belt, seems to be a near-perfect candidate.
According to reports in Spanish publication ABC (via Anfield Central), Varane is keen on a move to Liverpool. The report also claims that Manchester United have already made contact with the 27-year-old’s entourage, making the transfer saga all the more interesting.
The Real Madrid star is expected to cost around €70million, and the club will want to sell him in the upcoming transfer window rather than risk losing him on a free deal in the future.
