Hi Ed’s. With a defensive shake up looking very likely, is there any news on the future of Varane? Is the club looking to try and sign him to a new contract with reduced terms or would they rather him just leave? Also are there any players with expiring contracts the club are looking at to help us focus our budget else where?

{Ed002's Note - Raphael Varane (CB) Future at Manchester United will depend on whether or not the coach is replaced. He will have options in Europe with Bayern Munich and the Middle East come the summer - but the club may look to a new contract on reduced terms.}

If ETH stays Varane goes Ed?

{Ed002's Note - I would think he will.}

Hi ed002

I may be wrong but does that mean if eth is replaced he might stay at the club on reduced terms and if eth is here he is gone? or the the other way round.

{Ed002's Note - I doubt he will want reduced terms.}

Ps I’d rather him stay despite his injury concerns.

I thought it was quite telling that EtH had referred to building a new young team a few weeks ago. He hasn't taken that stance before suggesting a slight deviation in where we are and maybe in our transfer plans. I'd also keep Varane but I reckon they'll be trying to shift all the heavyweights this summer.

Agree Spenno. If we look at moving on some of our top earners and their (approx) weekly wages, could be huge savings and money available to reinvest:

Martial 250,000 p/ wk
Casameiro 300,000 p/ wk
Sancho 200,000 p/ wk
Varane 250,000 p/ wk
Christian Eriksen 200,000 wk

Approx total per week: 1,200,000 p/ wk or approx £60 million / year, which, if amortised, can pay for several top players.

I seem to recall reading somewhere that moneys saved in future wages wasn't taken into account with the current budget which seems a strange stance but who knows.

Wallace it doesn’t work like that as a players’ fee plus contract is amortised across a maximum of 5 years now. Any signing will also have wages to consider. We need to sell well to buy big. Personally I’d sell either or both of Bruno and Rashford along with any fringe players already mentioned as likely to leave.
