Five things Varane might have spotted from Man Utd study

  Five things Varane might have spotted from Man Utd study Raphael Varane has apparently been studying Man Utd's defending last season. Here's what he might have spottedUnited can’t defend set-pieces

Arsenal suffer blow in the race to sign Manuel Locatelli, Atletico Madrid are preparing for life without Kieran Trippier and Tottenham have their eyes on Atalanta centre-half, all in today's transfer chatter.

The Red Devils are edging closer to signing Real Madrid and France international defender Raphael Varane and are confident of completing the deal by the start of August, according to reports. Manchester United are set to bid for Real Madrid star Raphael Varane this week. Reports claim the Red Devils are confident of confirming the deal within 12 days. French international Varane has less than a year left on his Real contract.

David Alaba has revealed he is hoping that Raphael Varane stays at Real Madrid rather than joining Manchester United – while he explained his own decision to move to the Spanish capital.

After more than a decade of service to Bayern Munich, Alaba recently joined Real Madrid as a free agent. It will be an exciting new challenge for someone who became one of the Bundesliga’s best players. Able to play in a variety of roles, the Austria international will be keen to see who he lines up alongside.

At present, it seems like Real will mainly use Alaba as a centre-back. They have lost Sergio Ramos on a free transfer to Paris Saint-Germain, so need someone to step into the middle of the defence.

Real Madrid give ‘green light’ to Varane over Man Utd transfer

  Real Madrid give ‘green light’ to Varane over Man Utd transfer Varane has emerged as the Red Devils' top centre-back target this summerWith only a year remaining on his current deal at the Bernabeu it looks likely that Varane will leave Real in the summer transfer window.

Real Madrid never look nervous in spending money and he is the kind of player who can fill the boots of Ramos and Pepe. Ramos is also approaching towards end of his career and Madrid ’s CB position needs a solid upgrade. He and Varane both can make formidable partnership, they both are French and have experience to play in top notch competition of La De ligt: According to recent news, Madrid is rivalling Barcelona for the services of Ajax captain. Every top team in Europe is lining up an offer for this top talent. Future of Varane and Marcelo are in question, whether they will be at the club for long.

Real Madrid are increasingly resigned to losing contract rebel and long-time Manchester United target Raphael Varane and have even set an asking price for the defender, according to reports in Spain. With Real unlikely to be able to give in to Varane ’s demands, the club are now braced to lose the 27-year-old and feel they must cash in this summer rather than risk losing him for nothing in just over a year’s time. There is also a feeling among the club’s hierarchy that the defender is keen for a fresh challenge elsewhere, having won multiple titles with Real , while he has become unhappy with

Their need for Alaba to become a new leader at the back will only become greater if Varane leaves as well. The Frenchman is heavily linked with Manchester United, who have admired him for a long time and now seem closer than ever to landing him.

But Alaba is hoping that Varane does not make the move and they can form a partnership together in Madrid.

“Of course I would love to play with Varane,” Alaba said at his unveiling. “For many years he has played excellent football and not just now.

“He is a wonderful defender and has great qualities.”

Alaba would have liked to have played with Ramos, too, but the Madrid legend could not find an agreement to continue with the club.

His number four shirt will now be inherited by Alaba, who does not feel any extra pressure is attached to it.

Man Utd have had "direct contact" with major club over 6 ft 3 star - "they are talking"

  Man Utd have had Big claim from Fabrizio RomanoReports from Manchester Evening News last month claimed that Man United submitted a £50m offer for Varane, however Real Madrid are holding out for a fee closer to £80m for the defender this summer.

Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane has been linked with both Manchester United and Chelsea this summer. Varane is out of contract in 2022 and he has insisted he remains “100 per cent committed to the team”, saying: “My future is clear, I am focused on the end of the season. read also:Zidane admits Real Madrid ‘struggled’ for Chelsea draw. “We are in an intense moment and all our focus is on the matches we have ahead.

Varane has been at Real for a decade, winning three LaLiga titles, four Champions League trophies and four FIFA Club World Cups with the Spanish giants, who he has played 359 times for since his debut. Varane is coming back late to Real training due to his efforts for France at Euro 2020 this summer, which saw Les Bleus go out at the last-16 stage following their defeat by Switzerland on penalties. Manchester United have also agreed the £73m signing of Borussia Dortmund and England winger Jadon Sancho this summer.

“They only had this number available but I know what this number means for the club,” he said. “For me, it’s an honour to wear it.

“I want to honour this number. It really motivates me. It’s a number that represents strength and leadership.

“I haven’t come here to compare myself to other players. I’ve come here to be Alaba and to continue to be Alaba.

“I want to bring my qualities to this team. I’m a versatile player. I can play in different positions.

“Ramos has been here more than a decade and has played great football and is a leader. We all know that. It would have been a pleasure to have played with him.”

Much like there is now a battle for Varane’s services, with one suitor looking to be in the clear lead, there was widespread interest in Alaba when he announced he would be leaving Bayern.

Imminent Varane transfer takes Man Utd by ‘surprise’

  Imminent Varane transfer takes Man Utd by ‘surprise’ The Red Devils announced yesterday that they had reached an agreement with Real Madrid to sign centre-back Varane. Having completed the signing of Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho in a £73million deal last week, the 28-year-old is set to be the next arrival. Five things Varane might have spotted from Man Utd study Man Utd have confirmed an agreement has been reached with Real Madrid for long-standing defensive target Varane to head to the Premier League.

Raphael Varane would like to be joined by Kylian Mbappe at Real Madrid , a player he considers to be “one of the best in European football”, and can appreciate why the opportunity to take charge of the France national team may appeal to Zinedine Zidane. Varane has told Europe1 on the rumours regarding a switch to Spain for World Cup-winning countryman Mbappe: “He’s still young but he has made huge progress and he keeps developing. “He’s becoming an all-around player and he’s still a goalscorer, he’s one of the best. “My goal is to play alongside the best players and Kylian is one of the

Varane also talked about Real Madrid ’s current season and praised teammate Karim Benzema, who has been one of the team’s most notable players so far. “He’s clearly at his peak, I see him so calm and at peace, he’s focused on football and physically he’s so strong right now. He embraced his role as the leader of the offense and he’s delivering. It doesn’t surprise me anymore, he’s being so consistent and not only about his numbers and goals, it’s also about what he brings to the table to help the team, and he’s doing that every three days,” explains Varane . The Frenchman also had some words to say

However, he only had Madrid on his mind.

Explaining his decision to join them, he confirmed he had other offers but has ended up at the world’s “biggest club”.

“I decided to take another step in my career to grow as a player and as a person,” he said. “Of course I received other offers but, for me, there was only one option and that was Real Madrid. This is a dream come true.

“It’s the biggest club in the world and that is the challenge I was looking for.”

At Real, he will be reunited with former Bayern boss Carlo Ancelotti, which compensates for his sadness that Zinedine Zidane has not stuck around to be his coach.

“I was saddened that Zidane left the club,” Alaba said. “But on the other hand, I was very happy that Ancelotti took over.

“We have an excellent relationship, having worked with him at Bayern.”
