Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane was able to complete Wednesday’s training session with the rest of the squad and will be ready to face Villarreal in the last match of the 2020-2021 season this Saturday.

Eder Militao and Nacho Fernandez have been completing great performances lately and it’s not clear if Varane will automatically return to the starting lineup even if he’s 100% ready to go.

This could be his last match as a Real Madrid player if the club ultimately decides to part ways with him next summer. Varane seems reluctant about signing an extension with the club and with his current deal expiring in 2022, Madrid would be forced to sell the defender if they don’t want to lose him as a free agent, with big clubs like Manchester United reportedly interested both in his transfer but also in his signing as a free agent a year from now.
