MANCHESTER UNITED defender Raphael Varane has named the two clubs he would join if he decided to leave Old Trafford in the near future.
The 29-year-old, who retired from international duty last month to concentrate on club football, has played a key role in Erik ten Hag’s squad at United this season.
After a slow start to the season, Varane has helped the Red Devils climb to third place in the Premier League table.
He also played the full 90 minutes as United beat Newcastle in the Carabao Cup final to end the club’s seven-year trophy drought
However, the defender recently admitted he has been considering moving elsewhere before the end of his career.
In an interview with GQ Magazine, he said: “I’ll either end my career in Madrid or in Manchester or in Lens.
“I’m not going to go to another club [other than those].
“But Madrid seems complicated to me. Players don’t usually go back there.
“The most likely result today is that I finish [my club career] either Manchester or Lens.”
Varane joined Man Utd in August 2018 in a £42m transfer from Real Madrid.

But before his time at the Santiago Bernabeu, he played for Ligue 1 club Lens, where he scored two goals in 24 games.
