The Premier league giants are supposedly weighing up a summer move for Real Madrid centre-back Raphael Varane.
The Red Devils’ defence has gone under increased criticism as of late, and keeping in mind that Manchester United acquired Alex Telles from Porto on deadline day, United’s failed to sign a defender in the transfer market.
With the people pulling the strings at Old Trafford presently looking forward to future windows, Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo reports that Manchester United are watching out for developments encompassing Raphael Varane’s contract circumstance at the Bernabeu.
In fact, the World Cup-winning Frenchman is out of contract with Real Madrid in 2022 and is apparently yet to enter talks over a renewal, with the Red Devils in this way wanting to strike a cut-price deal for Raphael Varane the following summer.
Nonetheless, with any semblance of Marcos Rojo and Phil Jones still on the books at Old Trafford, Manchester United would in all probability need to sell before they can buy.
Raphael Varane has made many appearances for Real Madrid since joining from Lens in 2011, winning three La Liga titles and four Champions Leagues in that time.
