Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has insisted that French defender Raphael Varane will not be leaving the club anytime soon.
The 48-year-old manager sounded the warning to Manchester United and every other club interested in the world cup winner.
Varane’s current deal with Los Blancos expires in the summer of 2022 but a few top European outfits are hoping they lure him away from the Santiago Bernabeu.
Sources close to the Red Devils claim Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is planning to make a move for the centre-back during the January transfer window.
But Zidane seems to have taken a stand on the availability of the 27-year-old saying both himself and the club are not interested in any offer for Varane as reported by Daily Mail.
He said: “He is part of this club, we were very lucky to be able to bring him to Madrid. “He has a great career, he’s achieved a lot since he’s been here. Of course, he is non-transferable for the club, for the coach that I am, for people in general.
“That’s clear and unambiguous. Now we can’t stop people from talking. They’re not just talking about Varane, but about all the players, Real Madrid ones and others.

But for Varane, my position is clear, and it’s the same as the club’s position.” Despite splashing a staggering £80 million to sign Harry Maguire from Leicester City, Solskjaer is still not satisfied and wants to improve his backline with Varane topping his wishlist.
The Frenchman has won four Champions Leagues and three La Liga titles since he joined Los Blancos in 2011.
