Real Madrid reportedly not eager on Raphael Varane reunion despite defensive crisis

Raphael Varane has witnessed several ups and downs in his Manchester United career but his contract ends soon. The club has been considering the possibility of offering him up for sale in January. However, a return to Real Madrid may not be possible, despite Carlo Ancelotti’s interest.

Real Madrid has been forced to hurriedly make a replacement signing this summer after Thibaut Courtois sustained fatal ACL, setting him aside for the whole season. It appears that they will go shopping once again in January as their backline continues to suffer a serious deficit.

Madrid board uninterested in Varane reunion amidst defensive woes

Manchester United’s center-back, Raphael Varane, is reportedly out of contract and is potentially available in the upcoming January transfer window. Ancelotti is said to be interested in Varane, recognizing the player’s experience, adaptability, and the fact that he has once worked with him, but it appears that Real Madrid do not want the defender.

Real Madrid has been suffering a deficit in the heart of their defence since David Alaba’s injury. Alaba has been ruled out of the season; hence, there is a need for Real Madrid to find a replacement.

It was initially suggested that Rafa Marin, who has been on loan to Alaves, could return to Real Madrid this summer but the club made no efforts whatsoever to actualize the transfer.

Ancelotti’s urgent need for a central defender has intensified, considering that Nacho Fernandez and Antonio Rudiger are, in theory, the only fit central defenders for a significant portion of the next three months.

The reliance on Eder Militao’s potential early return in February and Aurelien Tchouameni filling in highlights the pressing need for reinforcements in the central defensive position.

Real Madrid’s defensive woes deepen with Eder Militao and David Alaba sidelined

Real Madrid, just like Manchester United has suffered a colossal injury blow this season, which one or two payers sidelined for the whole season. Recently joining the list of injured players are Antonio Rudiger and David Alaba.

David Alaba left the field with noticeable discomfort in his leg shortly before the conclusion of the first half, while Lucas Vazquez replaced him. Additionally, Rudiger was observed limping after the game, revealing a calf issue that will require further medical examinations.

Los Blancos are currently experiencing a defense deficit as Nacho remains the only available defender for them. Elder Militao is still out due to an ACL, but the good thing is that they can make an impromptu signing in the January transfer window.
