Raphael Varane is thinking to take retirement from international football after more than a decade with the French national team, who won the World Cup in 2018. The player, who is 29 years old, apparently has physical and mental deterioration. According to reports, Raphael Varane wants to spend more time with his family.
With Real Madrid and the French national team, the Frenchman has already produced an amazing resume that includes victories in the World Cup and four Champions Leagues, among other achievements. He has experienced physical difficulties as well. It seems that he wishes to take more time off throughout the season to rest.
Despite his health issues, he got his selection in the squad for the French World Cup team in 2022. He played a crucial role in the team’s run to the championship. Ultimately, the disappointment of losing the final to Argentina and a desire to maintain his health and spend more time with his family may have affected his choice to retire from international football.
Varane is ready to leave the France squad, following in the footsteps of fellow countryman Hugo Lloris.According to reports, the former Real Madrid defender’s hectic domestic and international schedule has taken its toll, and he now wishes to spend more time with his family.
Varane made his international debut against Georgia in March 2013 and was a regular for Les Bleus until their 4-2 World Cup final victory over Croatia in 2022. He has been a consistent option for Didier Deschamps in recent years, but he is now ready to concentrate solely on events at Manchester United.
