Man Utd close to completing Varane deal

Manchester United have agreed a deal to sign France defender Raphael Varane from Real Madrid, according to several British media reports, reports AFP. Varane had been a longstanding target for United, who last week completed the transfer of England winger Jadon Sancho from German club Borussia Dortmund for a
reported £73 million ($100 million). Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men are now closing in on the signing of Real centre-back Varane, having agreed a deal worth a reported £34million rising to £42million with add-ons. The 28-year-old Varane, a 2018 World Cup winner, has one season left on his contract at the Bernabeu.
