Manchester United have long been interested in Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane and are willing to pay an annual salary of £10.3m to convince him to sign, according to reports.
It was reported last week by ABC that Varane hasn’t extended his deal at Real Madrid due to the fact that he received a better proposal from Manchester United.
Now, Defensa Central have made the details of that proposal clear and say that the Red Devils are adamant on signing the French defender.
Madrid, now managed by Carlo Ancelotti, were willing to give Varane an increase on his current wages, taking it from £4.3m-a-year to £7.7m-a-year, but the defender reportedly wanted more, hoping to earn as much as new signing David Alaba, who signed on a free on a £10.7m-a-year wage, having left Bayern Munich.

Manchester United see Varane as an essential part of their transfer plans and team next season, as they hope to close the gap between themselves and rivals Manchester City in the Premier League next season.
Solskjaer’s side are willing to meet Varane’s demands and have firm belief that it will be difficult for the World Cup-winner to turn down such an offer.
Last season, Manchester United used several defensive pairings as they tried to field a solid partnership with captain Harry Maguire.
The likes of Victor Lindelof, Eric Bailly and Axel Tuanzebe all had a try, with the Swede excelling the most, but United still see centre-half as a priority position to improve if they are to do well in Europe and England.
Varane joined Real Madrid from Lens in 2012 and has gone from strength to strength, becoming one of the team’s most important players over the years.

Talks between the two clubs haven’t started yet, but Real Madrid are hoping to earn at least £60m from the sale of their star defender, who has been at the club since 2012.
