Man United could make Real Madrid star their next signing – report

Manchester United could be set to make a transfer bid to sign Raphael Varane from Real Madrid, say reports in Spain

Manchester United could be set to make one final signing this summer by bringing Raphael Varane to Old Trafford from Real Madrid, according to reports in Spain.

Spanish publication AS is claiming that the Red Devils could be set to splash the cash on the France international defender as Jose Mourinho looks to bolster his rearguard options before the close of the summer transfer window.

Mourinho knows Varane well after having brought him to Real Madrid from French side Lens when he was in charge at the Bernabeu back in 2011.

However, the 23-year-old has struggled to hold down a regular starting spot in the Real Madrid first team and has been linked with a move away.

And reports in Spain claim that United could be set to make one final swoop to bring the defender to the Premier League club before the transfer window closes at the end of the month.

United have been very busy in the summer transfer window following Mourinho’s arrival at the club back in May.
