Jose Mourinho wants £50mill Raphael Varane .
Jose Mourinho is keen to strengthen his defensive options for next season, and Real Madrid’s Raphael Varane is reportedly a potential buy for Man United. Eric Bailly, who is undeniably United’s best central defender has had to deal with many injury problems this season, and Marcos Rojo has been in a similar position. Whereas Phil Jones and Chris Smalling have played in the majority of games this season, but have been the victims of heavy criticism, particularly Smalling. Victor Lindelof, who has also been on the end of criticism, has had his injury problems this season too After falling way behind neighbours Manchester City in the race for the title, some things have to change next season. Many believe the style of play has to be adapted into one that is much more attacking, but this is up for debate. What isn’t up for much debate is the attitude in certain games needs to change and the defending has to be better. Varane has made 27 appearances this season, but certainly isn’t sen as indespesible in Madrid. Both Jose Mourinho (at Chelsea) and Sir Alex Ferguson have attempted to sign Varane in the past, with neither being successful. Jose is reportedly ready to make a fresh bid though, one of £40 million, although Madrid are apparently seeking £50million.
