Manchester United are getting closer to signing Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane from Real Madrid this summer, MySportDab reports.
The Red Devils want to add Varane to their summer transfer list after bringing in Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund.
Coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his teak finished 2nd in the Premier League last season but without a trophy.
Manchester United have already officially confirmed the signing of Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund this afternoon, and are now focused on Varane.
Sancho was Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s no.1 transfer target for the new season, and the club also want to finalising a deal for Varane.
Defence has been a key area that United have already wanted to improve.
Coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants a reliable partner to captain Harry Maguire at centre-back, and Varane is the right man for the job.
According to MySportDab sources, Real Madrid are ready to negotiate a deal for Varane and demand around £43m for the Frenchman.
Los Blancos first demanded a shocking £60m for the player but they have now reduced it because he would soon run out of contract.
The arrival of David Alaba has helped United in talks with Real Madrid for Varane, as Alaba can now replace Varane at centre-back.
Meanwhile, Sergio Ramos has now also left Real Madrid after over a decade with the Spainish but he is expected to join PSG.
Since Ramos left, Real Madrid only have Varane, Eder Militao, Alaba, and Nacho are centre-back options for next semester.
Varane rejected Real Madrid’s offer of a new contract last week, because the player is unhappy.
