Varane purchase is part of Real’s Mbappe strategy
The impending departure of Raphael Varane from Real Madrid for Manchester United may be part of a bigger plot to lure Kylian Mbappe from Paris Saint-Germain to the Bernabeu.
According to ESPN’s Rob Dawson, Madrid and United have agreed on a transfer price of about €41 million plus €8.2 million in add-ons for Varane’s services.
Los Blancos are letting Varane go in order to get their finances in order so that they can make a bid for fellow France star Mbappe, according to Marca.
Despite Mbappe’s contract ending in 2023, PSG is expected to want at least €180 million if they listen to bids at all. Mbappe is also expected to earn €20 million per year.
Varane’s arrival at Old Trafford will aid their ability to achieve those targets. Madrid also saved €15 million in salaries by allowing Sergio Ramos to join PSG on a free transfer.
Madrid are unlikely to recruit new centre-backs despite the exits of Varane and Ramos. This means Victor Chust, Mario Gila, and Jesus Vallejo will be vying for a place in the pecking order behind recently arrivals David Alaba, Nacho, and Eder Militao.
It’s also been claimed that Lucas Vazquez was retained on because his modest salary make him a more cost-effective alternative than acquiring a new player, especially because Madrid is unlikely to make any major acquisitions this summer.
