Pep Guardiola eyes swoop for Raphael Varane

Pep Guardiola eyes swoop for Raphael Varane

Manchester City failed to make the most of their chances yesterday as they ended up drawing 1-1 with Wolverhampton Wanderers. 

The Citizens will have their sights set firmly on securing the Premier League title in the current campaign after lasts season’s heroics. And, it appears as if Pep Guardiola is already taking a look at next summer, as according to Don Balon, Guardiola is eyeing a swoop for Real Madrid’s Raphael Varane.

It’s understood that Pep Guardiola’s primary target for next year’s transfer window is Real Madrid centre-back Raphael Varane.

And, it’s stated that the City boss is willing to offer more than double the world record fee for a defender when he plots a £180 million swoop for the French World Cup winner.

Indeed, Manchester City already have one of the best defences in the whole of world football, but adding Varane to their ranks would take them to another level.

THE VERDICT:

Raphael Varane has established himself as one of the best defenders in the whole of world football in recent times as he helped Real Madrid secure the Champions League trophy last season and the won World Cup with France.

Indeed, Manchester City will be looking to find a replacement for Vincent Kompany at some point in the future, who appears to be coming towards the end of his career and was sluggish at times against Wolves.
