Real Madrid are now ready to sell defender Raphael Varane this summer to help fund other transfer plans, MySportDab reports.
Los Blancos will sell Varane if possible to fund the £174million transfer of Kylian Mbappe from PSG.
Varane is now in the final 18 months of his contract with Real and would leave the club for free next summer if he does not agree a new contract.
According to Manchester Evening News, Real Madrid are not 100% sure about Varane extending his contract at the Bernabeu.
Real would prefer be paid £61m for Varane rather than letting him run down his contract and leave for free.
MySportDab understands that Varane is not happy with the new contract salary he has been offered compared to the other top earners.
With talks not progressing, Manchester United can take advantage of the situation to sign him.
Real’s financial difficulties due to the pandemic will see the club reduce costs if they are to pay to sign PSG man Mbappe this summer.
While the club have a £180m summer transfer fund for the squad, Mbappe’s transfer is likely to swallow the whole amount.
So Real still need to sell players in order to balance their financial records and Varane could leave at that cost.
Varane has been previously linked with a move from Real Madrid, with the 27-year-old considering almost leaving in 2019 before Zinedine Zidane returned.
Paris Saint-Germain have also shown an interest in the defender in the past, with more reports suggesting that Chelsea and Juventus are monitoring the situation closely.
Man Utd are keen to sign a new centre back partner Harry Maguire once the transfer window reopens.
After the 2018 World Cup in Russia, Varane was linked with a transfer to United, with reports saying that United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward offered £100m for the Frenchman.
However, Real Madrid’s asking price was too far beyond what Manchester United offer and the transfer failed.
Raphael Varane joined Madrid from French club Lens in 2011, and has won three LaLiga title, plus on four European trophies since his transfer.
