Man United Have Reached An Agreement With Real Madrid For Defender Raphael Varane

Manchester United has revealed that they have agreed to sign defender Raphael Varane from Real Madrid.
The cost of the France international, including add-ons, is estimated to be PS41 million.
“Manchester United is thrilled to announce the club has reached agreement with Real Madrid for the signing of French international defender and World Cup champion Raphael Varane, subject to a medical and player terms being confirmed,” the club said in a statement. The club had recently signed England international Jadon Sancho for PS73 million from Borussia Dortmund.
Hello, Reds! We’ve reached an agreement in principle to bring @RaphaelVarane to United!
]#MUFC — Manchester United (@ManUtd) July 27, 2021 Last season, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side finished second in the Premier League, although 12 points behind Manchester City.
Varane has established himself as one of the best defenders in the world, having joined Real from Lens in France in the summer of 2011.
He went on to make over 350 appearances for the club and 79 times for France, helping them win the 2018 World Cup.
He started all four of France’s Euro 2020 matches until the team was eliminated on penalties by Switzerland.
Varane’s first competitive action for United might come against Leeds United at Old Trafford on August 14 if the trade goes through as planned.
“If Man United do get Varane across the line, they are signing one of the top central defenders in Europe,” said Spanish football expert Terry Gibson on Sky Sports News.
He has been outstanding at Real since day one, he possesses all of the necessary qualities, and he has been slightly underrated due to Sergio Ramos’ presence.
“But in terms of talent, I don’t think there are many better than Varane.” 1:00 Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says the signing of Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund shows the fans that United is serious about business.
Sancho, whose transfer to Old Trafford was agreed in principle on July 1, had a physical earlier this month following his involvement in the Euro 2020 tournament.
Sancho has agreed to a five-year contract with United, with a one-year extension option, and will wear the No. 25 shirt for his new club.
0:18 Despite rumours regarding Paul Pogba’s future at United, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insists the Frenchman is always professional.
In the face of interest from Paris Saint-Germain, he is ‘increasingly unlikely’ to sign a new contract extension at Manchester United.
Pogba’s representatives and United representatives failed to reach an agreement, according to sources, with the France midfielder rejecting a specific offer.
The 28-year-old is in the final year of his current contract, and United must now decide whether to sell him this summer or keep him until the end of his deal.
On the first weekend of the 2021/22 Premier League season, Manchester United will host Leeds United at Old Trafford.
United will play three games in October and November, beginning with a trip to Leicester on October 16, the first meeting with Liverpool at Old Trafford on October 23, and a trip to Tottenham on October 30.
The first Manchester derby of the season takes place on November 6 when champions Manchester City visit Old Trafford, before United travels to Champions League winners Chelsea on November 27 and finishes the month by hosting Arsenal on November 30.
