Julien Laurens shares his thoughts on Varane to Man United

According to reporter Julien Laurens, Manchester United should make a play for Real Madrid's Raphael Varane this summer.

The Red Devils are expected to make many new additions this summer as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants to lead his side to a Premier League title bid next season.

Manchester United are rumored to be interested in signing a new central defender to accompany Harry Maguire at Old Trafford, and Real Madrid star Varane has been mentioned as a possible target in recent days.

The 28-year-current old's Real Madrid contract has just one year left on it, and he might be sold this summer.

Laurens said ESPN FC on June 21 when asked if Manchester United may pursue Varane this summer: “Yes… I think Varane is the better option [than Ramos].

“If you get Ramos and you get that experience and leadership, for me, you need another centre-half. If you’re ready to bring Ramos in, [you need] someone like Varane and then you could play a back three. You could have Ramos as a back-up.

“I think Varane would be perfect. He has one year left on his contract so Real Madrid would love to sell him because he isn’t renewing his deal – that’s for sure.

“He’s always been attracted to the Premier League. I’m not saying he’s going to say ‘yes’ to Man United right away, however, the Premier League has to be where he’s looking at right now more than going home to France or Italy.

“At 28, with the career that he’s had and the form he showed against Germany in the Euros, you’d go for him.

“He won’t cost you the world because with one year left on his contract, you can get him for a really decent price.”
