Man Utd bound Varane pens heartfelt farewell letter to Real Madrid fans

Raphael Varane has penned a heartfelt letter to the Real Madrid supporters as the defender closes in on a move to Manchester United.

Varane is set to join Manchester United in a deal worth around £42m, bringing an end to a successful decade in the Spanish capital that has delivered three league titles and four Champions League trophies amongst a vast collection of honours.


The France international had entered the final year of his contract and has decided on a new challenge in English football, with Varane penning a letter to the Real Madrid fanbase, thanking them for their support as he prepares to start ‘a new chapter’ in the Premier League.

“These past days have been filled with many emotions, feelings that I now want to share with all of you,” Varane wrote on Instagram. “After 10 amazing and wonderful years at Real Madrid, a club I will always carry in my heart, the day has come to say goodbye.

“Since I came in 2011, we’ve together exceeded all expectations and achieved things I never dreamed of. I would like to thank all the coaches and all the people who work or have worked at the club for everything they have done for me.

“Thank you very much also to all the Madridistas who always gave me a lot of love and with their great demands they pushed me to give the best and fight for every success.

“I had the honour of sharing the locker room with the best players in the world. Countless victories I’ll never forget, especially ‘La Decima’. I realise it’s been a great privilege to have been able to live those special moments.

“Finally, I want to thank all Spaniards and especially the city of Madrid where my two children were born. This country will always be special to me. It’s been an amazing journey in every way. I leave with the feeling of giving it all and I won’t change a single thing in this story of ours.

“A new chapter begins…”
