The transfer window for Europe’s biggest clubs is closed, but you can click here to review all the deals. Transfer Talk will continue to scour the world’s media and set correspondents loose to see what’s on the agenda for the summer. Madrid slap huge price tag on Varane.
Real Madrid will be asking for €100 million before they consider selling defender Raphael Varane, who has been linked with moves to both Manchester United and Juventus, CalcioMercato understands.
Madrid would ideally prefer not to sell their World Cup winner at all, hence the hefty asking price.
Manchester United have recently been linked with moves for Tottenham Hotspurs’ Christian Eriksen and Everton’s Richarlison as well, so spending a triple-digit figure on Varane too would seem like a tall order, even for the Red Devils.
Varane has played for Real Madrid since 2011, notching up more than 170 appearances for the La Liga side.
