Varane is currently immersed in France’s European Championship campaign but the speculation over his future has been raging on the outside.


He has a year left on his contract and Real Madrid are yet to hear from him after offering the Frenchman a new deal.



Manchester United have identified him as their top defensive target and are said to be in talks with Real Madrid over taking the defender to Old Trafford this summer.


And it has been claimed that Real Madrid have been informed by Varane’s representatives that he is keen on a fresh challenge.



Real Madrid are now aware that Varane is eyeing a move away from the club in the ongoing transfer window.


Florentino Perez, the Real Madrid president, has made it clear to Carlo Ancelotti that the club will sell Varane if they receive an acceptable offer.



Manchester City and Chelsea have an informal interest in him but Manchester United are the ones who are seriously keen on signing him.


But any move will have to wait until the end of France’s European Championship campaign this summer.
