Manchester United are closing in on the signing of centre-back Raphael Varane from Real Madrid and have even been tipped to confirm the deal in the coming hours.
United have been pursuing Varane for a few weeks now, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer keen to take advantage of the fact that he has one year left on his contract and has been refusing to sign an extension.
We’ve known for a while now that things are moving in the right direction and Varane is likely to be playing his football at Old Trafford next year, but Cuatro believe confirmation of the Frenchman’s move to Manchester could be coming on Monday.
It is said Varane agreed personal terms with United last week and the Red Devils have now struck a deal with Real Madrid over a transfer fee, which is expected to sit at around £43m.
The story picked up momentum with a claim from Sergio Quirante that Varane was the only player not seen at Real training on Monday morning, but the club then took to their official website to post pictures of the defender in training, bringing an end to that bit of the fun.
