In view of the next summer transfer window, Casa Blanca aims to sell one of its two key elements in defense to replenish the club's coffers.

Due to the global Covid-19 pandemic that has shattered any public hope in stadiums, Casa Blanca has no choice but to drop ballast this summer to bring in some cash.

According to information from the Spanish dailies Marca and AS, the Merengues would have made a strong choice in defense. After much thought behind the scenes, the Madrilenians would have chosen not to keep Raphaël Varane next season.

Under contract until 2022 with Real Madrid, the 2018 world champion has an estimated market value of 70 million euros. Courted by a lot of English clubs, the player is set to go like a bun this summer if his name is placed on the transfer list.

As for the case of Sergio Ramos, it could finally, after two seasons of adventures and ten episodes, stay warm in his favorite club and extend the adventure a little more.
