Man United linked with summer transfer move for Real Madrid duo – report
Manchester United want to sign both Alvaro Morata and Raphael Varane if David De Gea moves to Real Madrid, say reports
Manchester United could sign both Alvaro Morata and Raphael Varane as part of a deal for David De Gea to join Real Madrid, according to reports.
The Sun are reporting that Jose Mourinho will demand both Morata and Varane in return for any deal involving De Gea moving to the Bernabeu this summer.
De Gea’s future has been a source of speculation in recent months and the goalkeeper has long been linked with a move to Real Madrid. The Spaniard was on the verge of signing for Los Blancos back in 2015 before the deal fell through at the last minute.
The same report states that Real Madrid are willing to shell out as much as £60m to bring De Gea to Spain this summer but Mourinho is prepared to make sure he gets the best possible deal for Manchester United if the transfer happens.
The article also states that a deal for Morata could be struck, but that any move to bring Varane to Old Trafford is likely to fail as he is considered to be too important to Real Madrid.
