Premier League OFFICIAL : Raphaël Varane leaves Manchester United

Manchester United announced the departure of their French centre-back Raphaël Varane who joined the club back in 2021 on a free transfer from Real Madrid.

The 2018 World champion had quite a good time at Old Trafford with the Red Devils winning the FA Cup in the 2022/23 season as United beat Newcastle in final.

However, his struggles with injuries did not help him in making a longer career at Man United and their way will now go separately.

“Raphael Varane has confirmed he will leave Manchester United in the summer, upon the expiry of his contract, following three seasons at Old Trafford”, Man UTD statement reads.

“The much-decorated defender arrived at the club from Real Madrid in August 2021, and was memorably unveiled in front of our home fans at the Theatre of Dreams, before the opening-weekend win over Leeds United. 

“Varane has brought a great deal of class and experience to the team throughout his 93 appearances so far. The Frenchman also helped to win our first major trophy in six years, when lifting the 2023 Carabao Cup at Wembley Stadium. Newcastle United were shut out in a 2-0 triumph for Erik ten Hag’s men, with Rapha showing all of his experience alongside Lisandro Martinez.

“Everyone at the club thanks Rapha for his services and wishes him well for the future.”
