Manchester United, who are understood to be in the summer market for a new defender, has been handed a huge boost after recent reports claimed Real Madrid have dropped their asking price for centre-back Raphael Varane.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is reportedly keen to sign a new defensive partner for club captain Harry Maguire.
However, if a recent written claim from Mundo Deportivo (relayed by ESPN) is anything to go by – the United faithful can feel positive about the possibility of French World Cup winner Varane swapping Madrid for Manchester.
It has been reported that Los Blancos, who were originally demanding £60m for their star defender, have now dropped their asking price by a whopping £17.2m – meaning the defender will now cost closer to £43m.
This news comes a few weeks after Stretty News reported Varane’s entourage had held initial talks with the Red Devils’ head of player negotiations Matt Judge.
