Raphael Varane Announces Manchester United Exit At End Season

Raphael Varane said on Tuesday that he would leave Manchester United at the end of the season, but his three-year agreement at Old Trafford expires after that.

Raphael Varane announced on Tuesday that he will leave Manchester United at the end of the season when his contract expires after three years at Old Trafford. The former France defender, 31, arrived at the membership from Real Madrid in 2021 for an initial price of about £34 million ($53million) and has made ninety-three appearances, scoring two times. He was a part of the crew that won the club’s first trophy in six years — the 2023 League Cup. Varane, whose United career has been disrupted by injuries, has not played since a 4-3 defeat to Chelsea on April 4 but hopes to be available again before the end of the campaign. “To you men, supporters of Manchester United, it is a first-rate few years because I played for this unique club and wore that blouse,” Varane stated on social media.

The first time I went to Old Trafford as a Manchester United player was wild, and the atmosphere was amazing.

I fell in love with the club, with the fans. You have to play for Man United to understand what that represents.Raphael Varane

The 2018 World Cup winner added: Despite the fact we had a tough season, I’m very fantastic for the future. The new owners (United co-owner Jim Ratcliffe) are coming with a clear plan and a great strategy.”

United issued a statement saying

Varane had confirmed his exit. The club added that he had brought a “great deal of class and experience to the team. Rapha is most recognized for his calm work at the heart of the defense, as he has shown his undoubted quality since joining the club.”

United have endured a nightmare season. With 14 defeats, they are languishing in eighth place in the Premier League and look unlikely to qualify for Europe.

Erik ten Hag’s men have two league matches left, against Newcastle and Brighton, before they face Manchester City in the FA Cup final on May 25
