MANCHESTER UNITED defender Raphael Varane has named the two clubs he would consider joining if he decided to leave Old Trafford in the near future.
The 29-year-old, who retired from international duty last month to focus on club football, has played an integral role in Erik ten Hag’s United squad this season.
Following a slow start to the campaign, Varane has helped the Red Devils climb up to third in the Premier League table.
He also played the full 90 minutes as United saw off Newcastle in the Carabao Cup final to end the club’s seven-year trophy drought
However, the defender recently admitted that he has considered moving elsewhere before the end of his career.
In an interview with GQ Magazine, he said: “I will finish my career either in Madrid, or in Manchester, or in Lens.
“I will not move to another club [other than those].
“But Madrid seems complicated to me. Players don’t usually go back there.
“The most likely outcome today is that I will finish [my club career] in either Manchester or Lens.”
Varane joined Man Utd in a £42million transfer from Real Madrid in August 2018.
During his decade with Los Blancos he won four Champions League titles and three La Liga titles.
But prior to his stint at the Santiago Bernabeu he enjoyed a spell with Ligue 1 side Lens, where he scored two goals in 24 appearances.
