Raphael Varane has reportedly been given the green light to leave Real Madrid this summer.
Real president Florentino Perez has hinted the club will not stand in the way of any player who wants to leave.
“Varane? I’m happy with our team… if players don’t want to stay at Madrid they can leave,’ said Perez,” Perez was quoted saying.
Varane who has just a year left on his current deal with Real and he is yet to commit to a new one, has since hinted his plans to leave the club.
Metro UK reports the La Liga giants had valued Varane over £100 million less than two seasons ago, a valuation that saw potential suitors back off.
This development comes as good news for Manchester United and Chelsea who have since shown interest to sign the France international.
United boss Ole Solskjaer is reportedly desperate to sign a center-back who will pair with Harry Maguire.
Meanwhile, Real Madrid are willing to listen to offers for Raphael Varane or lose him for free next year.
