Cristiano Ronaldo left Juventus for Real Madrid in the summer and now, according to fresh news, he hopes that Varane will do the same.
The French international is presumably weighing his future in Spain, having won all the important trophies since he arrived from Lens in the summer of 2011.
Manchester United has been heavily tied to a move for central defender, with Ed Woodward long dreaming of securing his services.
But Ronaldo, the Italian media suggested, is instead trying to convince the winner of the World Cup to move to Italy.
The Italian outlet Il Messegero claims that the 34-year-old spoke with Varane in an attempt to convince him to move.
The pair consisted of teammates at Real Madrid for seven years, winning four Champions League trophies on that occasion.
Juventus already has a formidable defense often composed by Leonardo Bonucci, Giorgio Chellini and Medhi Benatia.
But Varane would be a huge addition given his pedigree as one of the best defenders of world football.
With Manchester United interested, however, only time will tell how the transfer saga will unfold.
Woodward was willing to pay £ 100 million to win the World Cup winner in the summer, but he thought that Real would not cash.
Meanwhile, Varane opened his future for Real Madrid, saying: "To say that I am not happy with Real Madrid is not true.
"I am at Real Madrid. The biggest club in the world. I am constantly in a state of testing myself because the requirement here is that of the highest level.
"I'm focused on my career. We had a difficult time in the middle of the season we had to fight. I gave my best in this shirt and I can be proud of it.
"I can't control everything that is said [in the media]. Many things are not right, but I can't say I'm unhappy in Madrid.
"We have had a difficult season, it is the daily routine for the top players. I am discreet and the problem when you are a quiet person is that you hear many things but speak little about yourself."
