And there are suspicions that Varane doesn't plan on renewing his deal with the La Liga heavyweights.
As a result, Spanish newspaper Marca claim Real Madrid will look to offload the World Cup winner this summer.
Zinedine Zidane's side would rather cash in and find a buyer soon rather than risk losing him on a free transfer next year.
And Manchester United are the leading contenders to secure his signature, according to bookmakers Coral.
The Red Devils have been installed as 13/8 favourites to sign Varane and have the financial muscle to afford his £150,000-per-week salary.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Co. have been on the look-out for a central defender to partner Harry Maguire for several months.
And Varane, along with Brighton's Ben White and RB Leipzig talent Dayot Upamecano, are being monitored.
Coral’s John Hill said: "With Raphael Varane's contract set to expire next summer, there is sure to be a number of Premier League clubs interested in his services.
"Manchester United top our betting to secure the signature of the Frenchman in a transfer which would bolster their defensive options."
Mauricio Pochettino's Paris Saint-Germain are United's closest challengers at 9/4 to bring Varane back to his native France.
Chelsea are third in the betting market, available at 7/2.
Thomas Tuchel is considering his centre-back options and also has his sights set on Bayern Munich star David Alaba, who will be a free agent this summer.
Italian champions Juventus and Premier League leaders Manchester City are available at 9/2 with Liverpool trailing the field at 11/2.
