Raphael Varane may be generating talk of interest from Manchester United and Juventus, but Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane claims to have seen nothing to suggest that the defender is looking for a move.
As the summer transfer window approaches, speculation regarding who may be heading where is starting to build.
Various big-money deals are being mooted at the Santiago Bernabeu, both in and out of the Spanish capital.
Zidane is, however, eager to keep the 25-year-old World Cup winner on his books and insists a fellow countryman has offered no indication that he wants to leave.
Asked if he could imagine a Madrid squad without Varane, the Blancos boss said: “No, and besides, I don’t want him to go. None of us want him to leave.
“He’s still young, he’s been here for eight years, and he’s doing well. It’s life, but he seems fine to me.
“He hasn’t said anything about wanting to leave. But if you know something I don’t…
“What counts is what the player tells me and right now he is at the best club in the world. He has won a lot here and he seems okay to me.”
