Manchester United has reportedly completed all negotiations and agreements to sign Raphael Varane from Real Madrid but United has to wait for next week for the announcement.
According to widespread reports, United and Real have agreed on a figure of around €50m to buy out the 28-year-old's final year on his contract with Los Blancos. The Red Devils and the Frenchman have also agreed on the player's personal terms.
So what is next?
Varane is unable to travel to Manchester United yet due to Covid 19 quarantine, while also needing to pass a medical test first before putting pen to paper, according to Fabrizio Romano.
