Manchester United to test waters with opening Raphaël Varane bid

TF1 expect Premier League side Manchester United to test Real Madrid’s resolve with an opening bid for French international central defender Raphaël Varane in the coming days.

The outlet claims that Varane is currently reluctant to sign a new contract, despite Los Blancos pushing for him to do so, making the Spanish side open to allowing for a departure in the event that an acceptable offer is made.

The 28-year-old will shortly return from holidays, when he is expected to meet with Carlo Ancelotti to discuss his future.

Varane has not made a definitive decision on his future yet, but the door appears to be opening positively for Manchester United.
