Real Madrid defender, Raphael Varane, has dismissed reports linking him with a move away from the Santiago Bernabeu to join Premier League giants, Manchester United this summer.
Varane has been on Man United’s radar for the past two years and former Read Devils boss, Jose Mourinho, failed with his attempt to lure the 25-year-old to Old Trafford.
The France international said he is not unhappy at Real Madrid after he was linked with a move to Man United at the end of the season, stressing that he is not pushing for a move away from the Los Blancos.
“To say that I am not happy at Real Madrid is not true,” Varane was quoted by Metro UK as saying after France’s 4-1 win over Moldova on Friday night.
“I’m at Real Madrid. The biggest club in the world. “I’m constantly in a state of challenging myself because the requirement here is that of the highest level.
“I’m focused on my career. We had a tough time in the middle of the season where we had to fight. I’ve given my all in this shirt and I can be proud of that.
“I cannot control everything that’s said [in the media]. Many things aren’t right but I can’t say I’m unhappy in Madrid.
“We had a tough season, it’s the daily routine for players at the top. “I’m discreet and the problem when you’re a quiet person is you hear many things but talk little about yourself.”
