Jose Mourinho has reportedly held personal talks with real Madrid defender Raphael Varane, in a bid to lure the Frenchman to Old Trafford. Mourinho has a very good relationship with Varane whom he bought for Real Madrid when he was their manager.
Mourinho is also eyeing another Real Madrid star in Alvaro Morata, he hopes to land the duo according to those close to him.
Manchester United expect Real Madrid to try and sign David De Gea this summer, and Mourinho will ask for Varane plus cash.
Real Madrid are ready to make amends for their failed attempt to land the Spain number one in the summer of 2015, and the Spaniard is also ready to move to the Los Blancos.
Mourinho expects to add only 4 star players to his team this summer, as he wants quality and not quantity.
Phil Jones and Chris Smalling’s long term future is in doubt because of the constant injuries being faced by the duo, meaning Eric Bailly is the only defender that has featured for Mourinho consistently this season, and he wants Varane to partner the Ivorian.
