Transfer News: Manchester United ready to pay £50m to sign Real Madrid Star

Manchester United are preparing to make a £50m bid for Raphael Varane this summer, according to reports. Varane, the Real Madrid defender, has already revealed contact has been made over a switch to Old Trafford, and it is understood the Bernabeu club are willing to sell the 24-year-old centre-half. He is now in his seventh year in Madrid, and could finally join Man United after originally being chased by the club in 2011, when Sir Alex Ferguson was in charge. Varane opted to join Real that summer, when current Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho was in charge of Los Blancos, and he could link up with his former manager.

It was under Mourinho that Varane established himself as one of the finest young defenders in world football, and The Sun say a £50m bid is expected this summer.
