‘Serious option’: Raphael Varane opens the door to retiring at Man Utd

In an exclusive interview with GQ Magazine, Raphael Varane has opened the door to spending the remainder of his career at Manchester United.

The Frenchman joined the Red Devils from Real Madrid in the summer of 2021 and he has since been a key player for them at the heart of the defence.

Varane is currently one of the indispensable figures in the squad and he has now welcomed the possibility of seeing out the rest of his career at United.

Speaking to GQ Magazine, he said: “A serious option. I will finish my career either at Real Madrid, Manchester United or at Lens.”

“For sure I won’t do another club, but Madrid, it seems complicated. You don’t tend to go back generally. The most likely is that I end in Manchester or Lens.”

Varane has been a fantastic acquisition for United

The World Cup winner has had his fair share of injuries in his short United career, but he has been an undisputed starter when available for selection.

This season, Varane has formed a superb partnership with Lisandro Martinez in central defence. He has completed 86% of his passes while making 3.7 clearances.

The duo have played a huge part in the club’s brilliant campaign thus far and there is still work to be done to qualify for next season’s Champions League.

Meanwhile, United recently ended their six-year trophy drought by winning the Carabao Cup but they are still in contention to win the FA Cup and Europa League.

Varane was absent for the Fulham game before the break with a knock but United fans will be hoping that he will be available for the trip to Newcastle United.

United are likely to pursue another marquee centre-back in the near future, but Varane should continue to remain a key player so long as he can stay unscathed.
