Raphael Varane’s transfer to Manchester United will be completed this week. The club had announced an agreement to sign the French a few days ago.
Varane has said goodbye to Real Madrid and will be unveiled by United next week once the formalities are cleared and he has been quarantined.
The French defender’s upcoming move to Old Trafford was a big talking point, it’s a real coup for the club to win him after 10 years in Spain.

Celta Vigos Denis Suarez, who has played against Varane on multiple occasions, was on loan at Arsenal and played for the City youth team, believes Varane will be a great success at Manchester United.
Speaking to The Guardian, Suarez said, “Varane is elegant, efficient, but most of all I want to highlight his calm and ability to pass this on to others, which is very valuable.
“It’s amazing how calm he is and that will give United a lot. A 10/10 signature and no problems adapting to the Premier League. “
Experience and quality
There have been some ridiculous comments from Danny Mills at Talksport asking if Varane is getting on with the Premier League.
Denis Suarez is a player who has played in both England and Spain and his assessment of the likely successful transition from Varane to life in England is more accurate.
Varane has been playing at the highest level for a decade and has won everything there is to be won for Real Madrid, including four Champions League titles.
Varane is only 28 years old but has a lot more to offer and his performance is still of a very high standard.
Varane ranked in the top 10 in La Liga because he won the highest percentage of his aerial duels last season: 75.3 percent.
Its quality on the ball also stands out. Varane finished second on Real’s roster for progressive carries in possession last season with 4,406 yards. This ranked only behind Luka Modric.
The defender’s pace should also compliment Harry Maguire, and the duo have the potential to form an elite partnership that could even enable United to fight for the Champions League.
