Man United working on deal to bring Frenchman in on £35 million deal

Manchester United are confident of completing a £35million swoop for Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane in the summer, according to the Metro website.

Varane was strongly linked with a switch to Old Trafford on transfer deadline day, but Louis van Gaal decided against an approach for the 21-year-old mid-season.

Chelsea are also keen as boss Jose Mourinho is also an admirer of Varane having worked with the defender during his time in charge of Real.

However, United are in pole position to clinch his signature at the end of the season, according to reports in Italy © 2017 Frontier Theme
