Raphaël Varane is hoping Manchester United extends his contract by a further year after the club made a mistake.
Manchester United signed Raphaël Varane in the summer of 2021 for a fee of around £34 million from Real Madrid, announcing that he had signed a contract until June 2025 with an option for a further year.
However, it was recently revealed that Varane’s contract actually ran until 2024 with an option for a further year instead of 2025, meaning that, technically, he is out of contract at the end of the season.
United still have their one-year extension option, and the Manchester Evening News have revealed that Raphaël Varane is hoping that this extension is triggered by the club soon.
In January, unless this happens, Varane will be allowed to talk to other clubs and agree to pre-contract deals ahead of moves in the summer, where United would be losing him for free.
This could make the option to stay much harder for Varane, who wants to be at Old Trafford next season if he was to be offered mega-deals by Saudi Arabian clubs or other big clubs across Europe.
“We know what he is capable of,” Ten Hag said of Varane at his post-match press conference on Sunday. “He has many such performances, and I think he did very well as the whole team in the partnership with Jonny Evans.”
