Manchester United are consistently linked with Raphael Varane and the latest reports coming from Spain indicate that the Red Devils have a agreed a deal with Real Madrid to sign the French defender.
Spanish journalist, Pipi Estrada told El Chiringuito TV that the agreement between Man Utd and the Los Blancos for the transfer of the Les Bleus star is ‘total’ i.e. complete. He did not talk about any fee.
Few days back, The Independent reported that the 28-year-old player wants to secure a move to Old Trafford if his huge salary demands are met.
However, another Spanish journalist in the form of Edu Aguirre has told El Chiringuito TV that as per his information, the former Lens center half does not want to leave the 13-time European Champions. Aguirre did not deny or said anything about the agreement claim made by Estrada.
The decorated star was hoping to get the winners medal at the European Championships but last night, Switzerland bounced back from two goals down to force extra time and then ended up ousting World Champions France on penalty kicks.
Now that Varane’s tournament is over, his future might be resolved soon. The Frenchman has got the experience and quality to strengthen any defense in the world and as per reports (The Athletic), he is valued at around £45million by the La Liga giants.
Manchester United conceded 44 goals in the Premier League last term, two more than Liverpool, who were without all their senior central defenders for majority of the campaign.
To challenge for the league title, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer must sign a defensive leader, who can effectively command the backline and Varane would be a world class addition.
