Manchester City made a bold move for Real Madrid highly-rated defender Raphael Varane.
The Premier League Champions want to improve their defensive options for the next season and have made a move for the World Cup winner Varane, a deal Real Madrid will not entertain because Sergio Ramos is at the twilight of his career and losing the two centre backs at the same time for a club like Real Madrid is laughable.
Manchester City is out to find a replacement for Vincent Kompany who left the Etihad for Anderlecht for a player-manager role at the club last summer.
Varane’s representatives have been informed about Pep Guardiola plans to bring the World Cup winner to Etihad Stadium, according to report in Tuttosport.
Real Madrid has no intentions of losing Varane and it will take an effort from the player to force a move out Santiago Bernabeu.
Real Madrid is also considering signing Inter Milan Milan Skriniar as a replacement for captain Sergio Ramos who has just a year left in his contract and he is reluctant to sign a one-year-extension, the former Sevilla defender wants a two-year deal.
