Raphael Varane contract: what error occurred in Manchester United star’s agreement with the club?

Manchester United is not alien to erroneous contract announcements; they once communicated that Nemanja Matic had signed a new contract until 2023, whereas the Serb had actually agreed to a two-year deal with a one-year option.

Also, a communication error has arisen concerning Raphael Varane’s contract, and clarifications on the situation indicate that Varane’s tenure at Manchester United may be concluding soon. Speculations abound, suggesting a potential departure in January, with Bayern Munich among the clubs mentioned as potential destinations but Varane wants to remain a Man Utd player in the foreseeable future.

What error occurred in Raphael Varane’s contract?

Raphael Varane’s current contract is set to conclude in June 2024, with Manchester United holding the prerogative to exercise an additional year. However, a mistake occurred during Varane’s ÂŁ42 million transfer from Real Madrid in August 2021, leading to United inaccurately stating that he was under contract until 2025 with the option of a one-year extension- This is a major twist in Varane’s Man United contract.

Speculation surrounds Raphael Varane’s future, with potential move to Saudi Arabia and a return to his former club Lens being suggested. United’s plans to acquire a new center-back in 2024, with Jean-Claire Todibo still on their radar, could further diminish Varane’s standing in the pecking order.

Since his current deal ends in 2024 and not 2025, the top French defender will need to prove himself once again to Manchester United in the hopes that they will keep him.

Raphael Varane hopeful of extending his United stay

With great hope and optimism, Raphael Varane is confident that Manchester United will exercise the one-year extension in his contract. This optimism stems from a miscommunication about the expiry date that happened when he signed.

There have been rumours suggesting that Raphael Varane may be considering leaving Manchester United. These rumours have emerged after he went through a period of twelve games without starting, due to his injury and subsequent recovery.

However, a recent development suggests that the French World Cup winner and Carabao Cup winner with Manchester United last season may have a desire to continue playing in Manchester.

Varane, who is 30 years old, started in both of last week’s matches against Bayern Munich and Liverpool, a change from his previous 13 matches, in which he had only appeared in one. It is worth mentioning that Varane took on the left side of the defense in these matches, a position that manager Erik ten Hag had previously considered unsuitable.

However, Ten Hag has once again changed his stance, praising the Frenchman for his impressive performances in the crucial matches against Bayern and Liverpool.

Discussing Varane at his post-match press conference on Sunday, Erik ten Hag remarked, “We know what he is capable of. He has many such performances, and I think he did very well, as did the whole team, in the partnership with Jonny Evans.”
