Manchester United are close to agreeing personal terms with Raphael Varane ahead of his impending switch from Real Madrid, according to our colleagues at the Manchester Evening News

The French defender, 28, is closing in on a move to Old Trafford after 10 years at the Santiago Bernabeu, where he has won four Champions League titles and three La Liga crowns.

Varane was also a mainstay in the France team that won the 2018 World Cup, and he featured prominently for Didier Deschamps’ side at this summer’s European Championships across the continent.

He has 79 caps for France in total, scoring five goals.

 

The MEN report that an agreement on personal terms is “not far off” ahead of a summer move, with Varane seemingly having his heart set on a new challenge.

Varane is currently on holiday with his family after playing for France at the Euros, but said to be relaxed ahead of what he hopes will be a successful conclusion to one of the summer’s transfer sagas.

Ex-England captain Alan Shearer questioned that decision after the match, claiming that such a move only heaps pressure on players.

“It’s a big, big ask. A big ask to put two players on with a minute to go to say you’re going to take a penalty for us,” Shearer told BBC Sport.

“You’re under enough pressure anyway as a player but the extra pressure you’ve put on those individuals when you’ve had no feel of the football, not involved in the game at all and then you’re put in that situation. It’s a big big ask.”
