The Real Madrid defender is said to be a transfer target for Manchester United
Florentino Perez is a man out on a mission at the moment. Unfortunately, its one which is not working in his favour with the Real Madrid man drawing the ire of the football world.
Already a massively hated personality for his shenanigans in the game, Perez has somehow managed to make matters even worse for himself. The Real Madrid president drew massive flak and backlash after embarking on giving birth to the Super League.
Massive outrage and distastefulness towards the move sparked the six Premier League sides deciding to withdraw from the league. However, Perez has still decided to stick to his guns with the Real Madrid president deciding to go ahead with the plans.
Perez Willing To Let Varane Leave
And in his petulant nature, Perez has now decided to let go of CB Raphael Varane as well. Quizzed about the defender who is said to be eying a move away from the club, Perez said he couldn’t be less bothered to hang onto the player.
Speaking to El Larguero, Florentino Perez said: “Varane? I’m happy with our team… if players don’t want to stay at Madrid they can leave.”
The latest comments are bound to be a massive shot in the arm to Manchester United who have been pursing the Frenchman. The club is scouring for a partner for captain Harry Maguire as the side looks to fix its jittery backline.
Perez meanwhile also talked about the Super League and reaffirmed that he would by no means be letting go off his dream project.
“If anyone thinks the Super League is dead, are they wrong? Absolutely,” Perez said.
“We’re going to keep working and what everyone thinks is for the best will emerge. The project is on standby. The Super League still exists.”
It remains to be seen what the future of the competition is with UEFA said to be pondering a ban for Real Madrid at the moment.
