Raphael Varane has left Real Madrid’s Valdebebas training ground for the last time.
Manchester United’s move for Raphael Varane is nudging ever closer. The Frenchman is yet to arrive in England to undergo his medical, but you’d feel those are a formality after an agree was reached with Real Madrid.
For so long, the Red Devils have been searching for that perfect centre-back partner to Harry Maguire. In Varane, they may have found exactly what they’re looking for – and I can’t wait to see him in action.
The Frenchman was spotted leaving Real Madrid’s Valdebebas training ground for the very last time earlier this morning, as he sets his sights on Old Trafford as his next destination.
Check out the video below:
Honestly, this makes it all seem very real. Varane will now likely be working out when he’ll be on his way to Manchester – hopefully, at some point over the weekend.
The sooner Varane can get himself to England, the quicker he can undergo his self-isolation period and finally put pen to paper on his Red Devils contract.
Varane is a boyhood United fan and no doubt he’s supremely excited to see how this move to the Theatre of Dreams plays out.
For United, they’re getting a player right in the middle of his prime, in an area of the field where they’re desperate for help. I don’t say this lightly but Varane is a player who could single-handedly shape our future. He has to have a similar impact to that of both Virgil van Dijk and Ruben Dias.
Whether or not Varane will be in the line-up to take on Leeds United in a couple of weeks remains to be seen. Now, the Reds are in a race against time to make that happen.
