Even though everyone was hoping Zinedine Zidane's appointment as Real Madrid's boss would appease Raphael Varane's desires to leave the team, it looks like Los Blancos are unwilling to try and convince him to stay put.

Varane has allegedly let the team know that he's no longer comfortable at Santiago Bernabeu, one of the reasons being the fact that the team didn't praise him for winning the World Cup.

Naturally, the Frenchman has been under the radar of several European giants, considering he's one of the most experienced young defenders in the world.

Among all clubs, Manchester United would be the frontrunner to acquire his services, with them willing to offload as much as €100m, as per Spanish outlet El Chiringuito TV.

The Red Devils have been on the hunt for a new centre-back for months now, with Napoli¡s Kalidou Koulibaly and Inter's Milan Skriniar as their main targets.

Moreover, with Real Madrid already completing the signing of Porto's Eder Militao, it looks like the team would be more than open to letting the Frenchman head out the door in the summer.

El Chiringuito TV also claims Varane has already let the club know about his desire to leave Santiago Bernabeu in the summer and that his decision is final.

Varane is a proven winner and a tough competitor. Despite his tender age of 25 years old, he's already a 4 time UEFA Champions League winner and a World Cup champion with France.

Also, with Real Madrid trying to orchestrate a move for Manchester United's Paul Pogba, perhaps both teams could work something out.

Nonetheless, the Red Devils are reportedly reluctant to listen to any bids for Paul Pogba or Marcus Rashford this summer, as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will give them a major role in the team looking forward, as per reports.
