Manchester United’s preparation for next season is set to get more intense as they are willing to start talks with Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane.

According to a report from Mirror, Varane is willing to take a new challenge in his career and will not be extending his deal with Real Madrid.
Manchester United are now the favourite to bring the world cup winner that challenge he wants, and talks are set to start in the next few days.
