Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane has been rejecting the club’s offers to extend his contract, which expires next summer. In this context, Real Madrid could be forced to sell him if they don’t want to lose him as a free agent in just 12 months.

The French defender could be willing to sign an extension if he’s offered €12 million a year, according to a report from ABC. That’s what Sergio Ramos was earning and what David Alaba signed for, but Madrid are only offering him €7 million/year, per that same report.

Varane sees that other center-backs in the world of football are earning a lot more than what he’s being offered even though he’s proven himself as an undisputed starter for Madrid in recent years.

If the two sides can’t reach an agreement, Madrid want to sell him for at least €50 million and will not let him go for less. Manchester United are interested in his signing and have offered around €40-45 million, but Varane will stay in the club this season if the British side can’t improve their offer.
