Reputable writer Fabrizio Romano claims that Manchester United defender Raphael Varane may depart on a free transfer this summer since the team has not extended an offer to him.

The Frenchman has been a vital member of United’s central defence, but he has had trouble staying healthy over a lengthy stretch of games. He has a muscle issue that keeps him from playing right now.

Varane is expected to return before the season ends, but it’s unclear if he’ll be with the team the following year.

His contract, which pays £340,000 a week, ends at the end of June. As of right now, United has no intention of activating an extension clause to retain him for an additional year.

They have not opened talks over a fresh contract either and he could head for the exit door as a free-agent this summer.

Speaking in his Here We Go Podcast, Romano said: “What I’m told is Manchester United haven’t offered a new deal for Raphael Varane.”

“Lets see if they change their mind in the final weeks of the season, otherwise Varane will leave as free agent in the summer.”

Varane could leave United this summer

Varane, who has been described as ‘world-class‘ by Rio Ferdinand, has impressed for United with several stand-out displays.

However, he has failed to stay unscathed over an extended period. His knack for picking up injuries has been a big concern.

As a result, the club are reluctant to extend his stay on his current wages. There are no plans of discussing fresh terms either.

In our view, the hierarchy are likely to release him at the end of the season. They could sign a young centre-back as his successor.

Everton’s Jarrad Branthwaite is reportedly one of the top targets for the club amid his huge progress with the Toffees this campaign.
