Manchester United trying to sign another centre-back after Bailly arrival

<> at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu on January 31, 2016 in Madrid, Spain.

Manchester United could be on red alert, and are exploring the possibility of adding another centre-back to the squad – despite already bringing in Eric Bailly this summer. El Confidencial in Spain say that Manchester United are keen on landing Raphael Varane.

The French central defender hasn’t been given anywhere near the playing time his talent deserves over the last few years, and he could well be about to leave the Santiago Bernabeu this summer.

Madrid are aware of Manchester United’s interest, and that’s why they could be open to selling the talented centre-half for a reasonable fee.

Mourinho is obviously a massive admirer of Varane’s, after the pair worked together previously, and he certainly seemed to get the best out of the 23-year-old.

Varane would certainly offer United plenty more depth in a key area of the field, and he could well be at the heart of a new central defensive partnership, alongside the aforementioned Eric Bailly.
