Those rumors are false, especially since he's been practically a starter. The only reason Pepe started over him last season was because Varane was still recovering from his knee injury.
I doubt the reports are false. He made just 12 starts after coming back from injury. He was one of the best young players at this year's World Cup. I don't think anyone is saying he's going to leave. But I'm 100% certain he'll sit down with Ancelotti and want to know if he's going to be a big part of the squad in the near future.
Looks like Lazar Markovic to LFC is all but done. Passed his medical at Spire and could be unveiled today. Good signing, though I think it will take him some time to consistently find his spot in the squad.
Arsenal agreed on loan for Atletico Madrid LB Javi Manquillo with option to buy.
Anyone know anything about this guy?
Wikipedia tells me he's young and has had few first team appearances. He did, however, apparently get knocked out of a match when he went up for a challenge against Cristiano Ronaldo. So, there's that.
