The former World Cup winner Varane has been confirmed to join Red Devils. It is now just a matter of hours or days for Varane to join the Reds as confirmed by Fabrizio Romano.
The rumors of French center-back being in contact with United were around for about a month. But there was not any reliable and authentic source. There were just too many rumors. But Fabrizio Romano, a transfer expert has finally eliminated the rumors to confirm the transfer of Real Madrid’s center-back joining Old Trafford.
According to Fabrizio’s post on his Instagram–
Deal almost done and agreement at final stages between Man Utd and Real Madrid, just final details to be completed and then paperwork time. It’s a “matter of hours or days”.
In addition, he also stated that – It will take some days for the official announcement but Varane is set to join Manchester United on a permanent deal.
A new challenge for Varane
Earlier there was a rumor that Raphael was seeking a new challenge in the Premier League after having a successful decade at Whites. But now, it seems to be true. The Real Madrid contract is going to expire in 2022. So, it was clear that either the Los Blancos would have to either renew the contract or sell Raphael Varane. But there was not any statement from both sides. Not it is near to confirm of him joining Man United.
Real Madrid’s dilemma
With the signing of Alaba from Bayern Munich, the transfer was more of a certainty. But, after having a dispute, Sergio Ramos decided to leave the Whites. This reduces the chances of Varane leaving Santiago Bernabeu. It was a 50-50 chance. But La Casa Blanca has made a safer move with their former center-back. Instead of taking a risk of letting the French center-back, Merengues has decided to sell the 3 times LaLiga winner to the Premiere League Giants.
Raphael Varane: Not a normal signing
Signing a Raphael Varane by United is not a normal signing. He joined the Los Blancos in 2011 from Lens. The 28-year-old French defender has already won a World Cup with France in 2018. He is a 4 times Champion League winner, 3 times Spanish champion, 4 times FIFA Club World Cup Winner, and several personal achievements. After having several years of failure to Red Devils, finally, they seem to have a great signing. Good luck Man United and Raphael Varane for future.
