Manchester United have agreed a deal with Real Madrid to sign French center-back Rafael Varane, the Premier League giants announced on Tuesday.
A statement from the club said: “Manchester United are pleased to announce that the club have signed a contract with Real Madrid for the transfer of French international defender and World Cup winner, Rafael Varane, under medical. And the player’s terms are being finalized. “
However, it is not expected that Varane will be able to get medical treatment by next week due to the current UK coronavirus restrictions.
No fees have been disclosed, but British media have reported that the value of the deal has increased by 34 34 million (47 47 million) to 48 48 million.
The 2018 World Cup winner, 28-year-old Varanasi, has one season left on his contact at the Santiago Bernabeu.
He moved to Madrid from French club Lens in 2011 and has been 360 notable in all competitions in Madrid since then, winning 18 major titles.
In a statement, Madrid – confirming that they have agreed a fee with United – acknowledged the time of Warne in the Spanish capital, saying: “Our club is committed to this player’s professionalism and Thanks to his exemplary behavior in representing our colors in ten seasons, during which time he has won 18 titles: 4 Champions League, 4 Club World Cup, 3 European Super Cup, 3 La Liga titles, 1 Copa del Rey and 3 Spanish Super Cups.
“I would like to express my gratitude to Real Madrid’s Rafael Varane and his family and wish them all the best in this new phase of their careers.”
If his move at Old Trafford is completed, Varanasi will find himself at the center of the United defense alongside club captains Harry Maguire, Eric Bailey and Victor Lindelof.
United finished second in the Premier League last season, but in the race to become England’s crowning champions, title winners and local rivals Manchester City had a huge 12-point victory.
The Red Devils have not won a major trophy since the 2017 Europa League, with the last United Premier League title victory coming eight years ago in the last season of the famous manager Alex Ferguson before his retirement.
It was Ferguson who first tried to unite the Warriors, with Jose Mourinho also interested in signing the defender in charge.
Warren dropped out of Lens’s academy before joining the French club’s first team at the age of 17.
Although the lens was unable to prevent trouble, its shape attracted the attention of several well-known European clubs and the teenager joined Real in 2011, winning 15 of all competitions during his first season in Spain. Mourinho’s men won La Liga with outstanding performances. .
