Manchester United

The £29.75m-rated defender who could be Man United captain for years to come

Manchester United are likely to go big in the transfer market this summer, with Jose Mourinho expected to add new faces to propel his side towards the Premier League title.

The United fans here in the Tavern this season have, in general, been a happy enough bunch, seeing their club secure a trophy and remain on course for the Europa League and also a top four spot.

This week, talk has turned to the transfer window coming up this summer, and just who United fans want their gaffer to go and sign to give them that real added quality they need to compete right at the top.

One player who has been mentioned, is current Real Madrid man Raphael Varane, who according to Transfermarkt, is valued at £29.75m.

The young French defender is a real class act, and on his best days looks like one of the best centre halves in the world. United have been keen to bolster their central defensive options ever since the Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic partnership was broken up, and Varane fits the bill.

Quick, powerful, strong, and an excellent reader of the game, Varane could go on to be a Man United star for years to come, and could well prove to be a shrewd piece of business if they could seal his signature.

United fans, what do you think to this? Would you welcome Varane to Old Trafford? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments!
