Real Madrid have already clinched the La Liga title and will be looking to do the double next week, as they take on Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League final. After that, there is going to be an important and potentially memorable summer transfer window for Los Blancos, as they continue to strengthen.

Kylian Mbappe's arrival seems to be only a matter of time now although yet to be confirmed. On the other hand, Endrick will be joining up with Real Madrid this summer as well.

The club have been linked with a few other players as well. One of them is Leny Yoro of Lille as they look to freshen up their centre-back ranks, with Nacho, Antonio Rudiger and David Alaba, all past 30 years of age.

A legendary Real Madrid centre-back is available this summer. And it looks like a move to a different team in the Spanish capital is not completely out of the realm of possibility if the speculation is accurate.

Real Madrid legend reportedly in talks with Atletico

As reported by Tribal Football, Okdiario's chief pundit Eduardo Inda said when speaking on El Chiringuito:

"It's Raphael Varane. They are talking, I'm not saying he wants to go. He wants to return to Madrid and they tell me that the Atletico would be interested. Savic is leaving and they are going to have to replace several players."

Of course, Varane's success at Manchester United was not the grand success that it was expected to be. The club did win a couple of cups during his stint in England but overall, they remained as inconsistent as ever and were not able to challenge for the major trophies like the Premier League or the Champions League.

Now, Varane is set to leave Manchester United. At 31 years of age, he should have plenty of football left in the tank though and it is not hard to see why Atletico Madrid might be interested in a veteran like him, who has proven himself to be a winner at the highest level multiple times over.
