Varela was David Moyes’ first signing in charge at the club in the summer of 2013, but after spending a year away on loan he was allowed to link up with Madrid’s Castilla team on a short term deal during the previous transfer window.
The 21-year-old had struggled to settle into the United side where there were very few Spanish speakers and South American’s to help him settle in.
Real have an option to buy Varela if he impressed and he has done just that in 13 games for the side’s reserves.
Zidane, who coaches Castilla, said: “I knew there was a Uruguayan fullback at Manchester United.
“I asked to see him and loved him. Luckily we could add him to Real Madrid, where I see a huge future.
“I’m delighted with Guillermo Varela,
“He is very serious and professional. He also has a lot of quality and I have no doubts he will make it to the top.”
