Raphaël Varane, A Solid Defender.



26 years old French World Cup winner and an Important influence in defence for Real Madrid alongside captain Sergio Ramos, yes I am talking about Raphaël Varane. The player who is as strong as Sergio Ramos and can be rightly called as top 3rd defender in the world, after Sergio Ramos and Van dijk.

In sensational form whenever he has played either for France or Real Madrid. He is damn pacy as well which is rare in defenders. Marcelo’s tackle on Leo Messi in the last el clasico might have been a heroic by Marcelo, but many people didn’t noticed how Raphaël Varane came in to support him with his blistering pace. Raphaël Varane has also not been dribbled past by Leo Messi in his entire career and they haven’t met once, twice or thrice but more than 10 times. Such an insane stat.

Apart from him being flashy, Raphaël Varane barely makes a mistake when playing. He has also won each and every club trophy with Real Madrid and a World Cup plus a Euro Final with France just by the age of 26. He is in Real Madrid from his teen days, scouted by Zinedine Zidane. He has also scored 15 times for Real Madrid and has provided 7 assists in 309 appearances. Also has 64 caps for France National Team scoring 5 goals in total. He is such a solid defender.
