Raphael Varane Emerges as Potential Transfer Target for Bayern Munich
Bayern Munich Monitoring Raphael Varane’s Situation at Manchester United
Recent reports suggest that Bayern Munich is keeping a close eye on Raphael Varane, who has fallen down the pecking order at Manchester United.
Sky Sports’ Florian Plettenburg has revealed that Bayern Munich has held discussions about the potential transfer of Raphael Varane and will closely monitor his situation in the coming weeks.
However, Varane’s high wages are seen as a major obstacle to any potential move. The Frenchman, who was signed for £40 million from Real Madrid in 2021, is currently earning around £340,000 per week, making him one of the highest-paid players at Manchester United.
Despite his impressive track record, which includes five Champions League medals, Varane has recently found himself behind Harry Maguire, Jonny Evans, and Victor Lindelof in manager Erik ten Hag’s list of preferred center-backs.
Valuation and Loan Options
Florian Plettenburg suggests that Raphael Varane’s market value is estimated to be between 20 million and 30 million euros (£17.5m-£26m). However, he also states that a loan move is not currently being considered.
Varane’s Exclusion and Determination
Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has expressed his confusion over Varane’s recent absence from the starting lineup. Ten Hag has reportedly assured Varane that his omission is due to tactical reasons, and the defender remains determined to fight his way back into the team.
As Bayern Munich continues to monitor Raphael Varane’s situation at Manchester United, the player’s high wages pose a significant challenge to any potential transfer. Varane’s exclusion from the starting lineup has raised questions, but he remains determined to regain his place in the team and prove his worth.
