Real Madrid centre-back Raphael Varane insists that he is 'not unhappy' at the Bernabeu following reports in the French press that he is seeking a move away.

Raphael Varane has hit out at speculation that he is angling for a move away from Real Madrid ahead of the summer transfer window.

French publication L'Equipe reported earlier this week that the centre-back has informed his teammates that he is hoping to exit at the Bernabeu at the end of the season.

Manchester United are rumoured to be monitoring developments and could make an £86m offer for the 25-year-old, but Varane insists that he is happy in the Spanish capital and has not asked for a transfer.

"To say that I am not happy at Real Madrid is not true," he told reporters following France's 4-1 win over Moldova. "I'm at Real Madrid, The biggest club in the world. I'm constantly in a state of challenging myself because the requirement here is that of the highest level.

"I'm focused on my career. We had a tough time in the middle of the season where we had to fight. I've given my all in this shirt and I can be proud of that.

"I cannot control everything that's said [in the media]. Many things aren't right but I can't say I'm unhappy in Madrid.

"We've had a tough season, it's the daily routine for players at the top. I'm discreet and the problem when you're a quiet person is you hear many things but talk little about yourself."

Varane, also a rumoured target for Paris Saint-Germain, has racked up 268 appearances for Madrid across his eight seasons at the club.
