Raphael Varane is a Manchester United player.

The 28-year-old World Cup winner with four Champions League titles to his name has just been announced as the latest big name signing for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this summer.

A club statement read: “Manchester United is delighted to announce the club has reached agreement with Real Madrid for the transfer of French international defender and World Cup winner, Raphaël Varane, subject to a medical and to player terms being finalised.”

The deal is expected to be around £34 million.

The centre back from Real Madrid arrives in Manchester after England’s Jadon Sancho was transferred from Borusssia Dortmund on a four year deal.

Varane is an immediate boost to United’s defence and will likely partner club captain Harry Maguire through the middle. With Luke Shaw and Wan-Bissaka either side of them, the Old Trafford faithful have reason to feel confident heading into the new season.

Varane will fly to Manchester next week to undergo his medical a few days later. He will be unveiled later than expected because of enforced quarantine rules as a result of Covid-19.
