Real Madrid will allow Man United to sign Raphael Varane for free but only on one condition

Should they absolutely have to part ways with star defender Raphael Varane, who is out of contract next summer, Real Madrid are determined to get their money’s worth. In fact, according to recent reports, should Florentino Perez get his own way, Los Blancos will allow Varane to join the Red Devils in exchange for a player themselves.

That’s according to European outlet Don Balon, who claims the Spanish giants are open to negotiating with super-agent Mino Raiola over a possible transfer involving Man United midfielder Paul Pogba.

It has been claimed that the La Liga side could offer the Red Devils a cost-effective proposal that would see Varane and Pogba trade places for free.

Almost identical to Varane, Pogba is also out of contract next summer and a move could also be on the cards for the midfielder.

It has also been noted by MEN that Real Madrid has recently turned down a £50m bid for their centre-back.

Man United fans – would you be happy with a possible swap deal involving Varane and Pogba? – Let us know in the comments.

  1. Sure, Pogba doesn’t really ever feel like he wants to play for united and it frees up room in a packed midfield plus we get a worldclass defender in varane. Really like Pogba but he doesn’t have the footballing desire or drive you see in players like Kante, Herrera or Cristiano.

  2. Not happy at all about the deal to involve Pogba. Pogba is another fighter of his own styles and quality unlike Verane. It should only happen so if Pogba refuses new Man Utd deal.

  3. Swapping Pogba for Varane makes a lot of sense, both are quality players with a year left on their contracts and of the same age. United get a centre half, Madrid a midfielder.
    However, I would rather United offload Martial and, if necessary, Dalot in exchange.
    With the money for a centre half saved, a move for a quality defensive midfielder should be made to allow Pogba the freedom to express himself in a way he does for the French national team, where Kante is the defensive shield.
    Selling Jones, Matic, Pereira to raise £15, million and free up space on a bloated payroll. Add to that the remaining transfer budget and you would get. Very good player leaving Fred as his back up
