Man Utd will fight for Varane

Manchester United is making the transfer of Rafael Varane from Real Madrid a top priority for the summer.

News that Rafael Varane may leave Real Madrid appears at about the same frequency as the news of Sergio Ramos's departure. But the Frenchman is not dominated by the status of a club legend, which would make him think about staying in Madrid.

In addition, Manchester United almost signed Varane before, back in 2011. Then, Alex Ferguson tried to lure him out from Lens, but Zidane, who served as an advisor at Los Blancos camp, convinced the player to choose Real. Madrid are now putting a 60 millon GBP price tag on their defender, although the Red Devils are hoping to bring the price down due to the crisis. In addition, Manchester are confident that he will be perfect paired with Harry Maguire.

Alternatives include the names of Pau Torres, Jules Kounde and Ibrahima Konate. They are good candidates for the future, especially when PSG are closely following Varane, which have more chances to lure the defender to them based on financial capabilities and stability in the Champions League.

Given that without Varane Real took out Liverpool in the Champions League quarterfinals, the club will not put too high a price on him. Earlier, there were frequent rumors about the departure of Eder Militao, but he showed himself well against the Scousers and Real can turn their attention to the Brazilian. Although we all know how Zidane treats his compatriots.

Therefore, we would not say with confidence about the one hundred percent departure of Raphael this summer. We think everything will be decided after the European Championship, where he will have to defend the colors of the France national team. But we think that he would really fit Manchester United, especially since there will be no big problems with adaptation due to the presence of Pogba and Martial at the club.
