Varane, 20, was signed by Los Blancos in 2011 from French side Lens for a reported fee of €10 million. In the past season, he made 15 appearances in La Liga for the first team and paired Sergio Ramos in the centre of defence.
The French youngster is highly valued by coach Jose Mourinho but the Real hierarchy would be open to sending the player out on loan in order to further his development. Sevilla coach Michel is looking into the option of taking the player on a season-long loan following the departure of Martin Caceres, who joined Juventus in a €9.5 million transfer.
Sevilla have a good relationship with the Madrid-based side, having previously secured striker Alvaro Negredo on loan. The Andalusian side hope to purchase the player on a permanent transfer at the end of the next season but Mourinho sees Varane as the long-term replacement for Ricardo Carvalho.
Real have already parted ways with Royston Drenthe who had joined Everton on a season-long loan in the preceding season.
Reports have linked Real with a summer swoop for Tottenham star Lukas Modric but the La Liga champions have otherwise been relatively quiet in the current transfer window.
