Ole craves CB, could steal march to sign £59million star for Man Utd – Report

Varane Real Madrid

Manchester United have appointed Fletcher and Murtough to recruit players and the latest reports suggest the duo could work to steal march on wanted players this summer.

According to The Daily Telegraph, the Red Devils have spent £1billion to strengthen their squad since the retirement of Alex Ferguson, still, they have not come close to winning the Premier League title. Therefore things needed to change and the 20-time English champions have appointed a DOF and a technical director.

Transfer: Man Utd ready move, could finally secure signing of £165,000-a-week star

The renowned British source have mentioned that the Old Trafford outfit could steal march to sign Raphael Varane and Erling Haaland, who are wanted by top clubs, in the summer. Our focus is on the Real Madrid center half.

The Telegraph report that manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer craves a CB and the Los Blancos defender is on his wish list.

The 27-year-old star is one of the best center backs in the world and not just that, he is arguably one of the most decorated defenders around.

Varane has won every major title with the Real Madrid since joining them from Lens. Moreover, he won the World Cup with France back in 2018.

In the current campaign, so far, in 25 league starts under the management of Zidane, the Les Bleus star has helped his team keep 10 clean sheets. He has also managed to score two goals as well.

The dilemma for the 13-time European Champions is that they have been unable to agree a new contract with their prized asset. His current deal at the Bernabeu will expire next year on 30th June and he is currently valued (MD) at around 70 million euros (£59million).

Ole’s desire to lure a CB is understandable keeping in view that Man Utd have been inconsistent at the back. They need a leader and Varane, who is at the peak of his game, would be a world class signing. We shall see how the transfer saga unfolds and will keep you updated.


  1. Better to buy quality than quantity. United need to strengthen the spine of the team and Varane and Haaland would be ideal.

  2. Hope Varane comes to OLd Trafford, as Maguire is very average, both as a CB and as a captain. Given his shortcomings as a player, how can he hope to advise others and be taken seriously?
