Born in Lille, Varane joined local rivals Lens at the age of nine and made his Ligue 1 debut at 17 years old in 2010.
Spanish giants Real Madrid liked what they saw and snapped him up the following year. The centre-back has since made more than 250 appearances for Los Blancos, winning four Champions League titles and two La Liga crowns. Has also amassed over a half-century of international caps, playing every minute in France's 2018 World Cup success.
