Raphael Varane

The highly decorated defender joined the team from Real Madrid in August 2021. Before Man Utd’s opening weekend victory over Leeds United, he was famously revealed in front of their home supporters at the Theatre of Dreams.

In his 93 games to date, Varane has contributed a tremendous lot of class and expertise to the squad. When the Frenchman lifted the 2023 Carabao Cup at Wembley Stadium, he also contributed to winning their first major trophy in six years.

Erik ten Hag’s team defeated Newcastle United 2-0, and Rapha displayed all of his skills playing with Lisandro Martinez.

The 31-year-old has two goals for the Reds; his first came a few years ago in a victory over Brentford at home. We started the current 2023–24 campaign with a 1-0 victory over Wolves, thanks to Varane’s second goal. That gave us three points.

Rapha is most known for his unwavering labor at the center of the defense, though, as he has proven his talent ever since joining the team.

He has played in the Premier League for 67 games so far, 58 of them as a starter.

The center-back hasn’t played since Chelsea’s 4-3 loss on April 4th, but he’s been recovering from his injury and should be back in action before the season is out.

Before the Emirates FA Cup final against Manchester City on May 25, there are Premier League games remaining against Newcastle United and Brighton & Hove Albion.

At United, everyone is grateful to Rapha for his service and sends their best wishes for his future.
