Varane set for new Madrid deal

According to French newspaper L’Equipe Raphael Varane is currently negotiating a new deal at Real Madrid.

The young defender was one of the revelations of the season last time around, forcing his way into Jose Mourinho’s starting XI towards the end of the campaign.

He arrived from Lens in 2011 in a deal worth around €10m, signing until 2017.

But the paper believes that the 20-year-old will put pen-to-paper on an extension until 2019, with a vast increase in wages.

Varane is currently one of the most low-paid players in Los Blancos’ first team squad, earning around €1m per season.
