The Red Devils have been in pursuit of the France international for quite a while, as the defender has been linked with the Premier League giants ever since the days of Sir Alex Ferguson.
Moreover, the centre-back position continues to be a problem at the Old Trafford outfit, especially with Eric Bailly and Marcos Rojo constantly battling injury issues, Phil Jones and Chris Smalling being inconsistent, and Victor Lindelof yet to adapt to English football.
Therefore, United have continued their search for a long-term solution at the back, and if reports from Diario Gol are to be believed, they may finally get their hands on Raphael Varane.

Los Blancos have been facing issues of their own at the back, having already conceded 29 goals in 27 La Liga matches so far.
Hence, the Spanish juggernauts appear set to use the upcoming summer transfer window to improve their backline.
In order to make room for the new defensive reinforcements, club president Florentino Perez is ready to part ways with Varane, provided he receives a transfer fee of €60 million in return.
And with Jose Mourinho being a huge fan of the Frenchman, coupled with the huge financial resources that Manchester United possess, this long-awaited transfer could finally materialise come summer.
