Transfer: Man United most interested in signing wanted £ 43million midfielder – Report
According to Sport (press image provided below), Man Utd have struck a deal with the Blues center-half that will earn him a salary of € 60million in five years (£ 51.4million).
As for the fees, the Spanish news source claimed that Real Madrid have requested € 70million for their valuable asset, however, all indications are that the 28-year-old will end up moving to Old Trafford for just € 50. millions. euros (£ 43 million).
The official announcement is very close. It is specified that the signature will be confirmed in a few “days, maybe hours”
Sport further report that the capture of the former Lens player will see the Red Devils withdraw from the race to sign Jules Kounde (Sevilla). On the other hand, the main target for the Bernabeu squad to replace Varane is Pau Torres (Villareal), who will cost no less than € 70million.
Raphael Varane is one of the most decorated defenders in world football and I think it would be a good deal to have a world class player like him for £ 43million.
As it stands, it looks like the Frenchman will join and form a central defensive partnership with skipper Harry Maguire next season.
