Champions League

Real Madrid will move for Leicester defender Wesley Fofana if Man Utd stump up for Raphael Varane transfer

LEICESTER centre-back Wesley Fofana has emerged as a target for Real Madrid to replace Raphael Varane should Manchester United sign the Frenchman.

The 20-year-old starred in his debut season in England after joining the Foxes in a £36.5million deal from Saint-Etienne last year.

Fofana featured 38 times under Brendan Rodgers as he helped Leicester finish fifth in the Premier League while also proving instrumental in their FA Cup-winning run.

And according to Fichajes, he could be on his way out of the King Power Stadium with Carlo Ancelotti said to be eyeing up a swoop for the youngster.

However they state the potential move depends on whether Los Blancos sell Varane, with the World Cup winner heavily linked with a switch to Old Trafford.

It has been claimed that the four-time Champions League winner, 28, is keen on linking up with the Red Devils.

Varane has just one year left on his contract in Spain and it remains to be seen whether he will follow Sergio Ramos out the door this summer.

The Spanish legend, 35, decided to quit Real after 16 years of service after refusing to sign a one-year deal.

Should Real press ahead with a move for Fofana, Leicester will likely command a huge fee considering the player is contracted until 2025.

But Leicester would be open to selling the defender should Fofana express an interest to leave.

Speaking last year about wantaway players, Rodgers said: “If a player doesn’t want to be here, with all due respect, we don’t want them here.

“It’s as simple as that, any club is the same.

“If you have a player that doesn’t actually want to be at the club, then you won’t want them at your club.”
