Raphael Varane inching closer to a new contract

Raphael Varane unhappy with his role at Manchester United.

The French defender has fallen down the pecking order behind Harry Maguire, Victor Lindelof and Jonny Evans and has struggled for minutes under Erik Ten Hag this season.

The World Cup winner has been overlooked by the Dutch manager and the club reportedly opted out of triggering his contract extension.

Varane’s contract with the Red Devils expires in the summer and the defender intends to fight for his place at Old Trafford.

Fabrizio Romano reported that the club are discussing terms over a new deal but cannot afford to keep him on his current salary package.

Romano said: “They are discussing a new contract with Varane because they are not activating the clause as they don’t want to continue on the same wages. So, they want to change the situation regarding Varane’s salary as it’s considered too expensive.

“So, it’s not to disrespect the player. It’s just because they want to change their salary structure, so they’re discussing it with Varane, as ten Hag says. But, for Man Utd, it’s crucial to go for a completely different salary.
