Varane and Ramos: What is wrong with Real Madrid’s former defenders?

Raphael Varane and Sergio Ramos will always be remembered as two of the greatest defenders in Real Madrid’s history. The centre backs have won eventually every domestic and international trophy while setting unbeatable records with both club and country.

But those achievements can be traced back to Real Madrid and not their present clubs. Ramos is yet to play a single match for PSG due to injuries and subsequent lost of form while Varane can’t just stay fit at Manchester Untied.

According to L’Equipe, PSG are already deliberating about terminating the Spaniard’s contract. The Parisian giants now understands why Real Madrid weren’t key to keep Ramos.

Los Blancos medical team realized in time that Ramos will struggle for months and if possible a year to get back to his best so, why keep a 35-year-old player who won’t be able to play for months or even years?

Varane meanwhile has managed just 5 appearances for Manchester United while suffering 3 different injuries in the space of 4 months.

Injuries, fatigue and subsequent lost of form have taken away the best of Ramos and Varane and now, Manchester United and PSG must find anyway to get the best value for their money even if they know there’s little to get in return.
