    And he peaked back in 12/13. What exactly is your point?

    Varane on when he turned down Mourinho's offer to join him at Manchester United

    "Of course it's flattering. Manchester United are a very big club. But from the moment when Madrid and I are in sync on my project, there's no questions to ask yourself.

    "I have always said I feel good in Madrid. It's not easy to say 'No' to Jose Mourinho, but you have to weigh up the pros and the cons. We're men, we have decisions to make and that's how it is."

    Players don't peak at 20, and development isn't a straight line. He'll be back to being top class before long.

    Pepe is at that age where he ould start to decline at any random month and that'll be it for him. Varane will be ok as long as he waits a bit. Plus with Zidane being french, I'm sure he'll probably hand that starting spot over to him sooner rather than later.

    Still no quite sure why I should respect this guy so fiercely. Yet another mediocre performance tonight to the list. Zidane will most likely bench him as soon as Pepe is fit again.

    He is fantastic and defenders do not become consistent until 25 or so, he still has three more years to go.

    He is refining his skill and gaining experience, experiences will differ especially when formations change, the opposition changes, when the rest of the team flops, he will be more exposed. He has exceptional talent but he needs to keep cool. For his height and all, I feel he has poor upper body strength, kind of like Pique.
    He is going through the phase i expected.
    May permanent peace be brought to the Arab world. My heart goes out to the families of those who have lost loved one(s). I wish and hope those who are creating religious, racial, regional, and tribal divisions among/within the Arab nations would be defeated in their quest for the destruction of the Middle East.

    He has amazing physique and he can read the play quite well but his inexperience shows in games like this. Sure, Arda's foul was stupid but Varane did the exact same thing and then let Suarez score.

    Varane has been quite good this season, and for once he havent had a serious injury. I hope he is over his injury-problems and can fulfull his potential.
