United and Juve-linked defender vows to stay at Real Madrid for next season

‘We will see the best Varane again,’ the 26-year-old says.

RAPHAEL VARANE HAS has ended speculation over his future after insisting he will still be at Real Madrid next season.

Varane, 26, had been linked to the likes of Manchester United and Juventus after eight seasons with the LaLiga giants.

Like many of his team-mates, the France international has endured a difficult 2018-19, which resulted in Los Blancos finishing third in the table – a whopping 19 points behind champions Barcelona.

Varane, though, is adamant that he will remain at the Santiago Bernabeu as Zinedine Zidane looks to reverse the club’s faltering fortunes.

“I’m going to stay here next year; I’m sure we’re going to relive strong emotions,” Varane told Marca.

“We have fought, we have tried hard and we cannot blame anything in particular but it is true that we missed that spark in the difficult moments.

“In football you have cycles and last season I was not at my best level, but we will see the best Varane again.

“We have to evolve and Zinedine Zidane is clear about it: we have to rebuild, and we have to change things.”
