Varane pledges future to Real
Raphael Varane has ruled out a move away from Real Madrid and says he will be part of the rebuild under Zinedine Zidane.
Varane has been heavily linked with a move away from the Bernabeu following eight seasons at the club, with the likes of Manchester United said to be in the hunt.
Zidane has insisted the France international remains in his plans, and the player himself has now said he is going nowhere and is looking forward to next season.
‘I am going to remain [at Real Madrid] next season as I’m sure that we’re going to respond in a strong manner,’ Varane told MARCA.
‘[This season] we fought and tried hard, but we can’t blame anything as it’s true that we missed that spark in difficult moments, and I haven’t been at my best level but we are going to see the best Varane again.
‘We have to evolve and Zidane knows that.
We have to re-build and change things as we look to restart a new cycle.’
