TRANSFER NEWS: Man Utd Face Fight For £8m Starlet

By on June 21, 2011

Lens starlet Raphael Varane is considering offers from Manchester United, Real Madrid and PSG.

The defensive midfielder who can also play as a defender will decide in the next 2 days if his future lies in Ligue 1, La Liga or the Premiership.

Sky Sports reports that the trio have all offered £8m for the 18-year old, with Madrid and United allowing the French ace to rejoin Lens on loan. PSG are surprisingly favourites to land Varane despite arguably the two biggest clubs in the world chasing his signature. Lens president Gervais Martel accepts his prized asset is set to leave this summer:

“Given the clubs involved, it would be very hard to stop him [from moving],” Martel told La Voix du Nord.

“I hope this will be finalised in the next 48 hours – I have just spent four hours on the phone, and there are many things to settle.”
