Raphaël Varane, the 30-year-old central defender, is going through a challenging period at Manchester United.
He has been relegated to the bench in the last three matches across all competitions, losing favor with manager Erik ten Hag.
Despite his experience and talent, Varane finds himself behind players like Harry Maguire, Victor Lindelöf, Jonny Evans, and even the versatile Luke Shaw. This delicate situation suggests that the Dutch manager may not intend to keep Varane this winter.
However, according to Manchester Evening News, the French player does not intend to leave the club in January. He would be willing to consider a departure only if Manchester United’s leadership clearly signals his exit.*
The possibility of Varane’s departure is not ruled out, given his current situation within the team. The player’s future at the English club will depend on how discussions between him and the executives unfold in the coming weeks.
According to information from Team Talk in England, Gennaro Gattuso and Pablo Longoria are also considering the former vice-captain of the French national team and may make an offer during the winter transfer window in January.
