Tottenham Hotspur are interested in Real Madrid defender Rafael Varane, according to journalist Duncan Castles.

New Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti is said to be concerned about the prospect of losing the club’s two center-backs following the departure of club captain Sergio Ramos to join Paris Saint-Germain.

Varane’s representatives are said to have been in talks with Manchester United for the past three weeks, with Madrid boss Florentino Perez skeptical that the France international is waiting for a new deal at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Castles claimed during an appearance on the Podcast on the transfer window that the center-back has been offered a new deal with the Spanish giants that would see him pocket € 7million (£ 6million) a year in take-home pay, with Varane waiting after Euro 2020 to reveal his decision after asking for € 10million (£ 8.5million) a year net to bring him into line with the contract David Alaba received when he joined Bayern Munich.

Madrid are said to have grown tired of the situation and are ready to sell the 28-year-old rather than lose him for free in a year, after setting a valuation of € 50million (£ 42million) while Manchester United were ready to offer € 40million (£ 32million) to bring it to Old Trafford.

United face competition for their signing with Tottenham who are currently exploring the possibility of a deal.

It would seem highly unlikely that Varane would be willing to trade Madrid for Tottenham given that we cannot offer Champions League football or generally meet his salary demands.
