Manchester United supporting punters here in the Transfer Tavern are deliberating the news they have just read in Talksport – with the publication suggesting that Manchester United are set to rival PSG to the signing of Real Madrid centre-back Raphael Varane next summer.
Now, our landlord cannot stop raving about the 22-year-old defender, and already feels the Frenchman is one of the world’s best centre-backs, and admits that he is only going to get better!
Our resident Manchester United fans over by the billiards table here in the Tavern feel that Varane would be one hell of a signing, and he would provide the perfect partner for Chris Smalling at the heart of the Red Devils defence going forward.
Our landlord admits he is worried about the interest from French giants Paris Saint Germain though, and feels the Frenchman could be lured into a move to his country of birth.
It was no secret here in the Tavern that Louis van Gaal wanted to sign Real Madrid star Sergio Ramos in the summer, but he ultimately failed to land the Spanish international, so it now seems that Varane is the man Van Gaal will press on and try and sign next summer!
United fans…. What do you make of this news? Just how good of a signing would Varane be? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
