Marca have got our punters in the Football Transfer Tavern looking up with excited smiles on their faces as they seem to think that Manchester United are keen on Real Madrid centre back Raphael Varane.
Now as one of our punters notes over by the pool table, United join a very long list of clubs who admire the young French defender, who can also play at right back and do a world class job, so it comes as no shock to see them once again linked with a swoop for the Los Blancos star.
We think that a swap deal involving Varane and De Gea should be discussed between United and Real Madrid – given United are facing facts that their keeper wants to leave, they may as well get something out of the deal.
Manchester United fans. Would landing Varane go a long way in sweetening the deal between you and Real Madrid for David De Gea? Is Varane as good as people say he is? Let us know your thoughts below.
