Our resident Manchester United supporting punters here inside the Football Transfer Tavern are looking closely at the news filtering in from Le 10 Sport via Talksport, with the publication claiming that the Red Devils are stepping up their interest in Real Madrid ace Raphael Varane.
The 23-year-old is undoubtedly one of the world’s most promising centre-backs and as our landlord quips, United should do all in their power to secure a deal for the France international.
The centre-back position has been somewhat of a problem decision for the Red Devils this season, and the addition of Varane being placed alongside someone like Chris Smalling could be superb for them season.
With Jose Mourinho in contention to take the job at Old Trafford, Varane could potentially be the Portuguese manager’s first signing at United, and this is something our United fans here in the Tavern are delighted with!
Our landlord feels this would be fantastic signing for Manchester United, and says at the age of 23, Varane will only get better.
Manchester United fans….. Would Varane be a good signing? Do you need a new centre-back? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
