Saudi clubs are eyeing big-name players for the upcoming January transfer window in the world’s richest league. Varane is a key target for Saudi clubs.
Varane, currently with Manchester United, is open to leaving the club just two years after joining from Real Madrid. Al Nassr, Cristiano Ronaldo’s club, is interested in Varane, but other Saudi teams are also keen.
Manchester United has faced challenges this season, leading to unhappiness among players. Varane’s agents have received inquiries about a January move from clubs worldwide. The Saudi league can offer an attractive financial deal.
Champions League clubs are also interested in Varane, who has had limited game time due to injuries. Some players at Manchester United may leave in January.
There are doubts about the manager’s decisions and the club’s trajectory. Unhappy players like Jadon Sancho may depart. Varane, earning over £300,000 per week, may not want to go through another squad overhaul.
Promises made to Varane when he signed have not been fulfilled, and Manchester United is falling behind other top clubs. Varane’s contract runs until 2025, and negotiations are possible with nearly 2 years left on his deal.
