Raphael Varane’s rollercoaster ride at Manchester United could be taking a lavish turn as Al-Nassr, backed by Saudi billions, is set to make him an offer that’s hard to resist.
The Daily Star reports that with a staggering £50m-a-year deal on the table, the Saudi Pro League powerhouses aim to pair him up with Cristiano Ronaldo once more, igniting dreams of a superstar reunion.
Owned by the ultra-wealthy Prince Faisal bin Turki, Al-Nassr’s ambitions signal a golden handshake for Varane, who’s found life tough under Erik ten Hag at United.
Despite his glittering past, including a World Cup victory and a trophy-laden era at Real Madrid, Varane has struggled for form and fitness, leading to a surprising sidelining at United.
With the Red Devils not keen on extending his current £340,000-a-week contract, the stage is set for Varane to potentially swap Manchester’s grey skies for the glitzy allure of Saudi football, marking another high-profile move to the rapidly growing league.
