In the ongoing winter transfer window, Al-Nassr is setting its sights on securing the services of Raphael Varane, marking him as their primary target with the ambition to enhance the squad’s overall quality. The Saudi Arabian club is keen on reuniting Varane with his former teammate Cristiano Ronaldo, with whom he shared successful years at Real Madrid.
Recent developments indicate that Manchester United (MU) is not inclined to activate the contract extension clause with Varane. Instead, MU aims to enter negotiations for a new agreement, seeking to reduce the compensation owed to the French midfielder. This approach has left Varane and his management team dissatisfied, opening up the possibility of a move to Saudi Arabian football.
While Varane had options in Europe, including a potential return to Real Madrid or a move to Bayern Munich, recent statements from Real Madrid’s coach Carlo Ancelotti ruled out signing a new midfielder in the winter transfer window. Similarly, negotiations with Bayern Munich came to a halt.
Staying at Manchester United would mean Varane faces limited playing time, as he is not favored by manager Erik ten Hag. In light of these circumstances, the Saudi Arabia Championship emerges as an attractive option for the 30-year-old midfielder’s future, offering regular playing opportunities and a lucrative income.
Varane’s strong friendship with Cristiano Ronaldo, coupled with their regular communication, adds an intriguing dimension to the potential move to Al-Nassr. The influence of CR7 may play a pivotal role in convincing Varane to consider joining the Saudi Arabian club, where he could reunite with his former teammate and embark on a new chapter in his football journey.
