Varane was shown in the photograph taking pleasure in his leisure time at an unnamed location that was covered in snow. It is likely that he was at a ski resort, which is a winter pastime that Manchester United players are not permitted to participate in because to the potentially dangerous injuries that are involved with skiing.
In spite of the fact that the club does not allow skiing throughout the season, Varane posted the picture that showed him standing in the middle of the snow-covered slopes with skiers in the backdrop. Concerns have been raised as a result of this move, and it is quite possible that manager Ten Hag will inquire about whether or not the defender participated in skiing during this period of time upon his return to Old Trafford.
The majority of European teams, including Manchester United, do not encourage their players to participate in winter activities such as skiing because of the risk of injury to their most important players at these activities. There are other events that have given rise to this fear. One example is the leg injury that Bayern Munich goalkeeper Manuel Neuer suffered during the winter break of the Bundesliga in 2022. This occurred after Germany’s difficult World Cup campaign in Qatar.
Despite the fact that Varane’s representative claimed that the defender did not engage in skiing at the resort, the controversy that surrounded the Instagram photo may put a cloud over his time spent at Old Trafford.
Varane, a four-time winner of the Champions League who moved to Manchester United from Real Madrid in July 2021, has been the subject of rumors regarding his desire to leave the club. There have been reports of interest from Saudi Pro League clubs and Bayern Munich, the German champions.
There is still a lot of uncertainty over Varane’s future at Manchester United because his contract, which pays him £340,000 per week, only has one season left. Despite the fact that the club has the ability to extend his contract for an additional year, there is still a lot of conjecture about the possibility of him leaving the club.
The difficulties that Varane has encountered in establishing a regular berth in the starting lineup have caused him to fall behind Harry Maguire at one stage. Varane has made 18 appearances for Manchester United this season across all competitions.
In light of the fact that the defender has recently participated in five of the club’s most recent six games, missing only one due to illness, the controversy that has surrounded his winter escapade and the existing uncertainties about his future at Old Trafford add an additional layer of intrigue to his already eventful season with Manchester United.
