Raphael Varane is ‘very close’ to joining Manchester United, according to Diario AS journalist Edu Cornago.
Regarded as one of the finest defenders in world football and a player that has been a big part of the Madrid side over the last ten years or so, it has been big headlines in the media that Varane is set to leave the giants
Real were unwilling to let the 28-year-old depart, particularly in light of Sergio Ramos’s impending move to Paris Saint-Germain, and new manager Carlo Ancelotti is seeking crunch talks with the World Cup winner
However, he is not looking to sign a new contract with the Spaniards and now they are ready to let him leave the club rather than risk losing him for absolutely nothing next summer transfer window.
Both Chelsea and United have been two clubs that are very much interested in bringing him to the Premier League this summer, but it seems like the Blues are all set to miss out on the man, as he look set to sign for the Red Devils
Cornago has claimed Varane is desperate to link up with Manchester United on social media, He tweeted: “The Varane-United agreement is very close to being produced. Varane welcomes the option of going to Manchester.
Look, if the reports are true and Chelsea are all set to lose out to United for Varane, it will be a massive loss as he is world class and would help the Londoners win back that Premier League title
He will be a great signing for United, if they get a deal done
