Long interested in the tricolor world champion, Manchester United hope to attract Raphael Varane next summer. The Mancunian club would have reason to believe it.
The start of the season for the Red Devils worries Manchester. Already beaten three times after only seven Premier League matches, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men only point to 14th place in the standings – with one match admittedly late – and their situation in the Champions League necessarily made more complicated following to their defeat on the lawn in Istanbul.
This situation necessarily bodes well for a turbulent summer. If the Norwegian technician, although recently confirmed by his leaders, could obviously bear the brunt of these poor results, the summer transfer window should also be agitated in the ranks of Mancun. Like last summer, the Red Devils hope in particular to strengthen in central defense.
Varane sacrificed for Mbappé?
What if the names of Kalidou Koulibaly and Dayot Upamecano, already mentioned last summer, are mentioned again, Manchester United would also dream of recruiting Raphael Varane, on Mancunian shelves for a long time. “Raphael Varane escaped Sir Alex Ferguson in 2011 and they ended up with Phil Jones. Ten years later, United have a chance to sell Jones and sign Varane, ”wrote the Manchester Evening News on Thursday.
And to believe the Mancunian daily, the Red Devils have reason to believe it. Consequence in particular of the difficulties of the French world champion since the start of the season. The defender of real Madrid has made several big mistakes since the takeover and its status is weakened. The Spanish champions could therefore be tempted to let him go and this all the more so as the club merengue, which also wishes to attract Kylian Mbappé and Eduardo Camavinga, will need cash to meet its objectives. The sale of the Frenchman could therefore promote his designs.
