Real Madrid found Varane's replacement in LaLiga

The French defender could leave Real Madrid in the summer market if he does not renew his contract. Meanwhile, the name of Jules Koundé begins to haunt Valdebebas.

Raphael Varane has a contract with Real Madrid until June 30, 2022. Unlike what happened with Sergio Ramos, President Florentino Pérez has already submitted a renewal offer, but the French central defender continues to wait to sign. According to the newspaper ‘Mundo Deportivo’, the white club is not willing to wait for him all the time.

If he does not accept to continue in the team beyond next season, Valdebebas is clear that he must be sold. Madrid do not want Varane to go free in 2022 without leaving a single penny in the club's safe. It is for this reason that if he does not respond to the offer, the sports management will put him on the transfer market with the aim of earning 60 million euros. PSG and Manchester United appear as the main stakeholders.

The Spanish club has so planned the ‘Varane case’ that it has not taken long to find a replacement for the French defender. It is nothing less than his compatriot Jules Koundé. The central defender of Sevilla was one of the revelations of LaLiga 2020-21 and in Valdebebas they already see him dressed in white in the next season, waiting for his surroundings to accept the proposal from the Madrid team.

With Alaba, Militao, Vallejo and Nacho, in Real Madrid they are clear that one more defender must be signed. That is why Koundé has placed himself in the front row to reinforce Carlo Ancelotti's team. The next few days will be key to define the arrival of the Frenchman, who has a contract with Seville until 2024. Always according to the aforementioned source, Koundé has a termination clause of 80 million euros, a figure that Real Madrid would try to reduce with the exchange of some players such as Marcelo or Isco Alarcón, who do not appear in Ancelotti's plans for next season. Pau Torres from Villarreal and Aymeric Laporte from Manchester City appear as alternative plans at Real Madrid.
