Raphael Varane will sign for Manchester United following a transfer agreement with Real Madrid.

Varane will make Old Trafford his home and be a regular at a stadium he last visited in 2013.

The night was a painful one for Manchester United. Sir Alex Ferguson and United fans were furious than ever after a terrible referee decision sent Nani to a high boot.

To date, it is one of the worst decisions by a referee in a major European game involving Manchester United.

The red card was made even more painful by the fact that it was Sir Alex Ferguson’s last chance to win another Champions League title.

For his part, Varane played impeccably both legs of the knockout game.

The two teams separated 1-1 in Spain, with United being defeated 2-1 in the second leg at Old Trafford.

Nani’s 56th-minute red card led United 2-1 overall before Real won 3-2.

These photos are fascinating to look back on because the United team has broken apart over the years. Varane is still at the top of his game and will now become United.

With United’s home form slumped at times last season, it can’t hurt to attract a defender with happy memories of the Old Trafford win.

Check out these old pictures of Varane pitting Sir Alex Ferguson’s last great team and take a trip back in time …
