Manchester United have reportedly agreed on a £41 million deal with Real Madrid for Raphael Varane as per the report in Sky Sports.
The 28-year-old has expressed his desire to leave Los Blancos after enjoying a great time for a decade. The Spanish giants offered a new contract to the Frenchman. But the World Cup winner wanted to start a new chapter in the Premier League. And the Red Devils’ approach has impressed the defender the most.
Manchester United’s legendary manager Sir Alex Ferguson wanted to bring in the highly-rated teenager at the Old Trafford, back in 2011. But, Real Madrid finalised the deal with RC Lens. And the defender went to La Liga and showed his quality from day one.
However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has finally signed the 28-year-old and will be hoping to experience the same what the Frenchman was producing for Real Madrid. Varane and Harry Maguire could prove to be a successful centre-back pairing at Manchester United for years to come.
Manchester United agreed on a deal for Varane:
According to the report in Sky Sports, Manchester United have agreed on a £41 million(including bonuses) deal with Real Madrid for the French defender Raphael Varane. The deal will get finalized after the 28-year-old passes the medical in a few days.
Manchester United fans might not be able to see their new signings before the first game of the season against Leeds United on 14th August. As the defender will have to quarantine after landing in England from Spain. So, the deal could take a while before it gets official.
Moreover, The Red Devils are showing the sign of intent this summer. Following the acquisition of Jadon Sancho, signing Raphael Varane is an extremely positive sign for Manchester United fans. Current reports are suggesting that Solskjaer will not stop right now. As he still wants a midfielder and a backup right-back.
Raphael Varane will certainly bring solidity to Manchester United’ fragile defence. Solskjaer’s side needed a new centre-back this summer. And the Frenchman’s addition will make the base very strong. And now they must go for a new defensive midfielder to challenge for the Premier League title next season.
