Varane is always

The center-back has played 28 of the 30 official games and is the outfield player with the most minutes this season and in the accumulated of the last four seasons.


The 30 oz of Zidane that Zidane has arranged this season have two names engraved on fire. One is that of Courtois, in a position, that of goalkeeper, little given to changes. The Belgian has only given the goal to Lunin in the Cup match against Alcoyano. The other is Varane. The French central defender is the outfield player who adds the most minutes this season and also the footballer who has defended the Real Madrid jersey on the pitch for the longest time since 2018-2019. And it comes from being decisive with two goals against Huesca.

Varane has only missed two and a half games so far this season. Zidane gave him rest in the first round match against Huesca, a match marked by rotations on the eve of risking his life in the Champions League against Inter. His other absence was due to a strong stomp he received in the first part of the Super Cup match against Athletic. He was substituted at halftime and missed the Cup tie against Alcoyano. It was the only physical problem that the white 5 has suffered in a season in which injuries are especially punishing his teammates behind. And he has not yet seen a single yellow in this League. Neatness in the quite.

In his tenth season as a Real Madrid player, he has played 2,475 minutes, behind the 2,610 accumulated by Courtois. Another five players exceed the 2,000 mark. His compatriots Benzema (2,230 ') and Mendy (2,117) and the almost inseparable trio that make up Casemiro (2,177), Modric (2,074') and Kroos (2,021 ') in midfield. 444 444

No other player has played as many minutes as Varane since the start of the 2017-2018 season. 13,894 in 158 games in all competitions. Benzema, Casemiro and Kroos have participated in more games, but without adding as much time on the field as the defender, who in these three and a half years has played 150 games from start to finish. And it is close to the 350 games played with Real Madrid. With that of Getafe it reaches 347.

The unknown is whether it will approach and exceed the 400-party border. The contract ends in 2022 (he will then be 29 years old) and Madrid still has pending the renewals of those who end their relationship this summer (Modric, Ramos and Lucas Vázquez). The club must react with agility: accelerate the management of the renovations or, if it sees Varane's intention to leave, be attentive to the market this summer to place it and be able to obtain a transfer for the Frenchman before he leaves for free.
