Raphael Varane to Man Utd gets ‘Here we go!’ from Fabrizio Romano, as the transfer reaches its final stages.

The Frenchman will follow in the footsteps of his ex-skipper and long-time defensive partner Sergio Ramos by leaving Santiago Bernabeu.

Meanwhile, Real have ensured there’s no repeat of the manner in which Ramos left by ensuring they secure a transfer fee for Varane.

United, on their part, have also been cautious in their pursuit, keen to avoid another episode like in the summer of 2015, when Ramos allegedly used their interest for a new Los Blancos contract.

The interesting relationship between the two clubs doesn’t just end there. The English outfit also missed out on signing Varane in 2011, as Real signed the RC Lens defender from under their nose through Zinedine Zidane.

The Red Devils would be delighted to get his signature, even if it meant waiting a whole decade. Judging by the reactions on Twitter, so are their fans.


Varane’s signing will be a statement that United are going for the Premier League title.

The 28-year-old is a three time La Liga champion and a four-time Champions League winner, and his arrival through the Old Trafford doors on its own will increase confidence amongst his teammates.
