Announced a few weeks ago, Manchester United announced on Tuesday that they had reached an agreement in principle with Real Madrid for the transfer of Raphael Varane. At 28, the 2018 world champion felt the need for a new challenge. He is the second signing of the Red Devils during this transfer window, after the arrival of Jadon Sancho.
The departure of the French international is expected to bring in around € 50m for Real Madrid, the club’s fourth biggest sale after those of Cristiano Ronaldo (€ 117m), Angel Di Maria (€ 75m) and Alvara Morata (€ 66m) ). In this operation, RC Lens will be able to collect a small check. Indeed as indicated Marca, Sang et Or will receive 2.5% of the transfer, or € 1.2 million, thanks to the FIFA training compensation. Varane left Lens for Madrid in 2011 against € 10m
