Manchester United only hours away from striking transfer agreement for world-class star

It is only a ‘matter of hours’ before Manchester United reach an agreement for the transfer of Real Madrid stalwart Raphael Varane, according to Los Blancos magazine MadridistaReal.

MadridistaReal (MR) report that Varane will leave this summer, but wishes to do so in a ‘pleasant’ manner as he is very ‘grateful’ to Real Madrid for what they have done for his career.

Varane has emerged as one of the more surprising high-profile names that is set for a transfer this summer after a contract standoff with Los Blancos leaves them forced to cash in now or lose the ace on a free transfer in a year’s time.

The 28-year-old is one of the most experienced centre-backs in world football and still has plenty left in the tank as United close in on recruiting a player that should instantly lift their team.

United are in need of a better centre-back partner for Harry Maguire due to the inconsistency of Victor Lindelof and the injury-proneness of Eric Bailly.

Varane, as a serial winner with Real Madrid, could bring the much-needed push that United need as they look to return to their former glory after years of relative mediocrity after Sir Alex Ferguson retired.

  1. More click bait?
    Has Varane decided to move from Real Madrid? – he wanted to make that decision whilst on holiday after the Euro’s, then go to Madrid to discuss with Ancelotti.
    Has Varane actually agreed to United’s contract proposal? – for a month now, it has been suggested that he wanted £12, million a year to be comparable to David Alaba, although Real would not agree to that amount, but United were prepared to pay what he wanted.
    Has a transfer bid been sent to Real Madrid? – it has been reported that United would offer £43,million (50, m Euro’s). If that were the case, why has the offer not been made?

  2. Absolutely right to ask those questions. Man Utd have a bad habit over recent years of taking forever to sign quality players, trying to knock the price down etc. If they want Varane, then they should buy him ASAP. Pay the asking price because we need Varane and he is worth it.

  3. Is it a matter of time or madrid still have varane into their plans next season so they are in poition of holding their aset for next season….
