Man United are seemingly nearing upon a deal to sign Raphael Varane.
Finding the right partner for Harry Maguire simply has to be priority number one for Manchester United and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The Old Trafford club have plenty of firepower up top, while defensively, their struggles were evident for all to see last season.
Signing a top-quality centre-half could make a massive difference in regards to carrying out a proper title challenge in 2021/22. Enter, Raphael Varane.
Thea Real Madrid superstar has been linked with a United move practically all summer. We’ve been on top of that here.
Apparently, Real Madrid are ‘forced to sacrifice’ the player as a way of balancing their accounts this summer.
Here’s where United come in. It’s claimed everything is ‘almost done’ for Varane to make the move to Manchester. In fact, the deal is just a ‘matter of hours’ away from completion, with United looking likely to sign the 28-year-old star this summer.
It’s added that things aren’t expected to take long because Varane doesn’t want to have to start training under Carlo Ancelotti then Solskjaer. He’d rather make his move to United immediately and begin to work with the Baby Faced Assassin.
At this point, it does feel like this deal is a matter of when rather than if. However, things can change very quickly in football so we’re not going to guarantee Varane will join United. Fingers crossed all the signs are heading that way, though.
If the deal does materialise, what a coup it’d be by the Red Devils. Finally, they have their defensive stalwart who can single-handedly change our future into a trophy-laden one.
