It’s no secret that Raphael Varane could be leaving Real Madrid this summer transfer window. The French international’s contract runs out next year in June and there have been no significant progression in the renewal negotiations either. With that being said, it all points towards a transfer after the EUROS.
In my previous article, I mentioned the three clubs that Varane could end up playing for next season. While a transfer looks likely for Raphael Varane this summer, I strongly believe that Los Blancos could end up regretting their decision and I have come up with three reasons why to back it up. Let’s have a look at the reasons.
THE RETURN ON INVESTMENT FOR REAL MADRID
Real Madrid signed a promising 19-year-old Raphael Varane in the 2011/12 summer transfer window. Since then, the Frenchman has been part of the first team and plied his trade under some of the best managers in Jose Mourinho, Carlo Ancelotti, and Zinedine Zinedine. Over the years, Varane has been groomed into this world-class defender that he is today.
After so many years of development, Real Madrid must now enjoy the fruit of all the hard work that has gone into shaping Varane. At the age of 28, the Frenchman is at the peak of his powers and has now entered the prime years of his career.
With that being said, the only viable reasoning would be to extend terms with Varane. He’s at his best condition in terms of physical matchday conditioning and even in his performances. It is true that Los Blancos have achieved a lot of success through Varane’s contributions in the past years. However, there’s still more to come from the defender for the next five years.
Raphael Varane should play out the best years of his career at the Santiago Bernabeu rather than any of the clubs he has been linked with.
