Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has disclosed that the club has not yet determined the future of center-back duo Raphael Varane and Jonny Evans beyond the current season. Both players are in the final six months of their contracts, and while United holds the option to trigger a 12-month extension for Varane, the decision is yet to be made.
When questioned about the desire to retain Varane and Evans for the upcoming seasons, Ten Hag straightforwardly replied, “We haven’t made that decision yet.” Despite having Harry Maguire, Victor Lindelof, and the injured Lisandro Martinez as center-back options, United is expected to actively explore further reinforcements in the summer transfer window.
While there has been speculation about potential interest in Barcelona’s Ronald Araujo, it is understood that the Uruguay international is not looking to change clubs. Another prospect for Ten Hag is emerging talent Willy Kambwala, a 19-year-old who has made four appearances for the senior side this season. Kambwala recently expressed his excitement about playing for United, describing his home debut at Old Trafford as the “best experience” in football and realizing a childhood dream.
