Manchester United reportedly reach an agreement to sign Real Madrid for defender Raphael Varane on fee of £41m this summer.
According to sports analyst Fabrizio Romano who confirm the transfer done deal of Varane with Man United on twitter
“Raphaël Varane to Manchester United, here we go! 🔴 #MUFC
Agreement almost done between Man Utd and Real Madrid, just final details to be completed and then paperworks time. It’s a “matter of hours or days”. Here-we-go. 🇫🇷
Varane has a total agreement on personal terms too. 🤝”
The price for the France international is believed to be £41m including add-ons and the deal is set to go through, subject to a medical.
Having already signed England international Jadon Sancho for £73m from Borussia Dortmund, the acquisition of Varane would be a further statement of intent from United.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team were second in the Premier League last season but finished 12 points behind Manchester City.
Varane is well established as one of the world’s top defenders, having joined Real from French side Lens in the summer of 2011.
He has gone on to make over 350 appearances for the club, and be capped 79 times by France, helping them to World Cup glory in 2018.
He started all four of France’s matches at Euro 2020 before they were knocked out on penalties by Switzerland.
If the deal goes through as expected, Varane’s first competitive action for United could come when they start their Premier League campaign on August 14 against Leeds United at Old Trafford.
