Liverpool have told Raphael Varane that they want to sign him during the summer transfer window, according to Diario Madrid.
Varane will have just one year left on his current deal at the end of the current campaign and Los Blancos could cash in.
Madrid will target a stellar signing or two and could look to use funds raised from Varane on someone of Kylian Mbappe’s stature.
It is thought that the La Liga outfit will want in the region of £43 million for their centre-back and more clubs are likely to be alerted.
Varane has been a decent servant to Madrid since arriving from Ligue 1 outfit Lens in 2011.
He has played 350 times for the club, helping them to three La Liga titles and four Champions League successes.
Following the latest update which has emerged today, Liverpool supporters have been reacting on Twitter.
It would see there are mixed reactions to the possibility of signing the £150,000-a-week star, despite his obvious quality.
Varane’s quality is obvious and it does seem somewhat bizarre that some Reds supporters don’t want him signed.
Here is what some supporters have been saying as the serial trophy winner is linked with a move to Anfield.
Sign this lad and it’s game on for the title

Robo, Varane, Van Dijk and Trent would be a 🔥 defense

WOW! VVD and Varane would be a cheat code. Still prefer Matip over anyone but he just can’t stay fit
