After Manchester United announced his departure… What is Varane’s next destination?

Manchester United announced in an official statement that Raphael Varane will leave its ranks at the end of this season after the two parties reached an agreement not to renew his contract at Old Trafford.

According to the Daily Mail, the main reason for Varane’s departure is his high salary and his refusal to reduce it despite attempts by United management.

The French international receives 380 thousand pounds sterling per week, and with his advancing age and declining levels on the one hand, and his many injuries on the other hand, the United management decided that it was best to reduce this huge salary or for him to leave.

British journalist Ben Jacobs indicated that the next step in Varane’s career will be moving to one of the Saudi League clubs.

The 31-year-old already received interest from Saudi League clubs last winter, but ultimately decided to continue until the end of his contract with United.

In principle, Al-Nasr and Al-Ittihad clubs are showing interest in obtaining the signature of Varane, who is now open to the opportunity to play in Saudi Arabia, especially since the salary he will receive may exceed his current salary at United.
