Raphael Varane Has Told Real Madrid That He Wants To Leave The Club
Raphael Varane has reportedly told Real Madrid that he wants to leave the club in the summer.
It appears Varane's spell at Real Madrid is coming to an end after eight trophy laden seasons.
Spanish TV El Chiringuito claim the defender has informed Real Madrid that he wants to move on at the end of the season.
He'd cost any team €100 million (£85 million) with Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus all keen on snapping up his services.
The 25-year-old has won everything at Real Madrid since arriving from Lens in 2011. He's won two La Liga titles, one Copa del Rey and the Champions League an impressive four times.
Not to mention the UEFA Super Cup (x3) and the FIFA Club World Cup (x4).
And, of course, over the summer, he won the FIFA World Cup with France.

The uncertainly surrounding Varane's future prompted a reaction from Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane who insisted he's happy in Spain.
"I can tell you he is very happy here, he has been here eight years, he has done phenomenal so far," he said over the weekend before news broke about Varane's decision to leave Madrid.
"I don't see him as people have said recently, he looks happy and committed in what he is doing.
"The feeling is positive. He knows what he has done here and it is normal that there are rumours that they want him, but I see him well here.
"He is the fourth captain here and his progression here is not over.
"Anyway there is a lot of talk, people can say and write and everyone can think and what the player thinks."
Varane's still at the peak of his powers and is naturally attracting interest from all over Europe.
Where will he be plying his trade next season?
