Report: Manchester United on verge of signing Varane from Real Madrid

Manchester United are in the final stages of completing a deal to sign Raphael Varane from Real Madrid, according to Rob Dawson of ESPN.

United are optimistic after holding talks with both Real Madrid regarding a fee and Varane’s representatives to negotiate contract terms, Dawson reports.

Varane, who’s in the final year of his contract, reportedly notified Real Madrid last week of his desire to pursue another opportunity after 10 years in the Spanish capital.

Madrid are holding out for €50 million, but United are hopeful they can snag the 2018 World Cup winner for a reduced fee, Dawson reports.

If Real Madrid fail to complete a deal this summer, the club risks losing the center-back for free next year when his contract expires.

The 28-year-old has won four Champions League titles and a trio of La Liga trophies with Real Madrid since his arrival in 2011.
