Blues: After Lloris and Mandanda, Varane will end his international career


The defender of the France team has decided, according to Le Parisien, to draw a line under his adventure in Blues.

A new page is turning in the France team.

After Hugo Lloris (36, 145 caps) and Steve Mandanda (37, 35 caps), it's Raphaël Varane's turn to end his career with Blues.

The 2018 world champion, who has not officially confirmed the information from our colleagues from Le


, believes that it is time to hand over and give way to young people in a game sector with very strong competition (Upamecano , Konaté, Kimpembe, Fofana, Saliba, Disasi…).

A real surprise for French football.

At 29 (he will celebrate his 30th birthday on April 25), the vice-captain of the selection, who was in pole position to take over the armband abandoned by Hugo Lloris, should announce the end of his international career in the near future.

An outcome which would induce the high probability of giving the status of captain of the Blues to Kylian Mbappé while the return of the selection is scheduled for March 24 next against the Netherlands then three days later against Ireland in the playoffs of Euro 2024. A new adventure that will be written with Didier Deschamps, but without Raphaël Varane.
