Man Utd Given Green Light To Sign La Liga Star In £53.5m Deal

By on March 5, 2018

The transfer window is closed but managers are working hard on their plans for the summer so we’ll bring you all the latest gossip from around the globe. Today, Man Utd could sign Raphael Varane this summer…

Manchester United have been given the green light to sign Raphael Varane this summer as long as they meet Real Madrid’s £53.5m asking price, according to a report by TeamTalk.

Zinedine Zidane is under pressure to rejuvenate his squad this summer after a disappointing campaign and the La Liga giants are expected to make wholesale changes to their playing staff at the end of the season.

Varane is one of several players who have been tipped for the chop despite the French international being a regular in the side having made 30 appearances in all competitions.

United have long been linked with a move for the 24-year-old with reports last month suggesting that Jose Mourinho had once again lined-up the defender as a key summer transfer target.

Mourinho is expected to further strengthen his defensive options this summer with Chris Smalling and Phil Jones tipped to leave and Varane has been earmarked as a possible long-term partner for Eric Bailly.

The United boss knows the Frenchman well having been the man to sign him for Madrid during their time together at the Bernabeu and it seems Mourinho is keen for a reunion at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils have now been handed a huge boost as TeamTalk are citing a report from Diario Gol that claims Madrid have informed United they can sign Varane if they meet their £53.5m asking price.

The Spanish publication says United were informed by Madrid of Varane’s valuation after the Manchester giants made contact to enquire about his availability so it looks like Mourinho is serious about landing the defender this summer.

United certainly have the financial firepower to meet Madrid’s reported asking price so a move could be on the cards if Varane is willing to swap Spain for England at the end of the season.
