Liverpool may just have their shot at Raphael Varane this summer. Real Madrid are in a desperate situation, according to reports.
Mundo Deportivo say Real Madrid are in a desperate situation. Though, not necessarily a negative one.
They agree with reports elsewhere that claim Los Blancos want both Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland this summer. Now, we know what you’re thinking – that’s ridiculous.
And it is. But this is also Real Madrid. They’ve gone down the impossible Galactico route before and pulled it off.
But succeeding this time would mean sales. Lots of sales. Sales featuring big-name players, too.

There’s Gareth Bale, Isco, Marcelo and, importantly for Liverpool, Raphael Varane.
And for us, Liverpool simply must consider moving for Varane. The potential in partnerships with either Virgil van Dijk or Joe Gomez is huge.
Real’s desperation to sell only increases Liverpool’s chances, too. They’ll want to sell quickly and they’ll give up some bargaining power as a result.
Add that to ‘final year discount’ and you can get a serial winner for a cheap price. Varane is something of a trophy magnet, after all, winning pretty much everything in the game.
He’s helped Real win multiple Champions League trophies, a couple of La Liga titles, and won the World Cup with France. It’s a collection of medals that compares to anyone’s.
It makes it all a no-brainer for Liverpool. A proven winner who performs at the elite level, openly available on the cheap.
We’re not sure how much more needs to be said. This is a golden opportunity to sign a sensational player who undoubtedly improves Liverpool for next season.
