It’s not often that World Cup winning centre-backs become available on the transfer market, even less so for under £40m, but that’s the precise scenario Man United are looking at with their purchase of Raphael Varane, something that talkSPORT pundit, Darren Ambrose, has suggested is an outstanding piece of business.
Los Blancos have been left with little option other than to cash in on Varane after it was believed the Frenchman made it clear that he saw his future elsewhere.
With only one year left on his Real contract, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has taken advantage of the chance to bag himself a bargain.
? “Varane is outstanding. #MUFC needed to improve in that area!”
? “To have a World Cup winner for £40m + add ons is an outstanding price!”
? “You’re looking at a fantastic defence.”
