According to widespread media reports, Premier League side Manchester United have reportedly agreed personal terms with Real Madrid centre-half Raphael Varane over a move to Old Trafford.
Rumour is mounting that the World cup winner could be on his way to Old Trafford in the nearest future, with top publication Don Balon also linking the France international defender with a transfer to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team earlier today.
And right now another Spanish publication, Diario Gol, claims the top class defender has agreed on a potential move to Old Trafford after becoming extremely unhappy with life at Madrid, with a reported £89million offer now set to be submitted to seal a deal.
If that figure were enough to persuade the Bernabeu giant to let the world class defender go, Varane, 25, would become the Red Devils joint-club-record buy, with France international midfielder Paul Pogba joining from Serie A champions Juventus for the same transfer fee back in 2016.
There’s without doubt Man United could accommodate more options at the back right now poor campaigns from the likes of England international centre-half Chris Smalling, Ivorian Eric Bailly and England star Phil Jones, while Argentine defender Marcos Rojo has strongly struggled to remain fit.
Rafael Varane has proved to all that he is the real deal after greatly impressing in his playing time at the Santiago Bernabeu and with the French national side, playing a major role in them lifting the FIFA World Cup final in Russia at the summer.
Supporters of Manchester United FC would certainly be thrilled if their side could pull this key signing off, whatever the transfer fee.
