The experienced centre-back has also been quite involved for Manchester United football club so far this ongoing season, scoring one goal in the 12 matches he has played.

The reports further claimed that Raphael Varane is really interested in leaving the Old Trafford side next year and he is currently eyeing a transfer move to Saudi Arabia.

It is believed that Raphael Varane has fallen down the pecking order at Manchester United football club since the start of this season and he wants to leave the club when the window opens in January.
