New Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti has been overruled in his plans for Raphael Varane.
With skipper Sergio Ramos' departure now confirmed, Ancelotti had wanted to keep hold of Varane, despite his unwillingness to consider new contract talks.
But Gazzetta dello Sport says Ancelotti has been told to forget it as Varane will remain up for sale with his deal about to enter it's final 12 months. The pair worked together during Ancelotti's previous spell in charge.
Manchester United are battling PSG for the France international - which suits Madrid.
The Spanish giants have no preference and will be seeking to sell to the highest bidder this summer.
