Due to his struggles with form and injuries, Raphael Varane may decide to quit Manchester United at the end of the current campaign. He has also been frustrated with his lack of playing time.

Al-Nassr, a Saudi Pro League team, is said to be interested in the 30-year-old and is prepared to pay him a £50 million annual contract in exchange for a reunion with Cristiano Ronaldo.
Should the out-of-favour Frenchman accept the contract, Raphael Varane and Ronaldo, who were colleagues at Real Madrid and Manchester United, will play together in their third club.

The Daily Star claims that Varane’s contract, which expires after the current season, has a 12-month extension option that Manchester United will not use.
Varane left Real Madrid in 2021 to join the Premier League’s biggest teams, allegedly earning £340,000 a week, making him their highest-paid player.

Varane has been with the team since 2017, and he helped them win the League Cup last year, their first trophy since then.

But last Saturday, in Manchester United’s 3-0 victory against West Ham United, he was benched in favor of Harry Maguire. Ten Hag had to substitute Varane in the eleventh hour due to an injury sustained by Lisandro Martinez to his knee.

Martinez may miss a minimum of eight weeks due to injury.

“Lisandro Martinez has sustained an injury to the medial collateral ligament in his knee and is expected to be out of action for at least eight weeks. We all wish Licha a speedy recovery and look forward to seeing him back on the pitch later in the season,”
