Reports: Man United lining up £40m offer for Raphael Varane

Manchester United is said to be planning a £40 million offer for Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane.

Varane has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford in recent months. The Red Devils are supposed to bring in a new center-back this summer as a companion for Harry Maguire.

The France international is still a key figure at the Bernabeu, but his current contract expires next summer, and there has been talk that Madrid could sell him in the coming market.

Man United is reportedly preparing a £40 million deal for the World Cup winner, who is said to be interested in joining the Premier League during the summer transfer window.

According to the article, the 20-time English champions have twice struggled to sign Varane but are now optimistic of taking him to the club ahead of the 2021-22 season.

The center-back, who has previously been linked with Chelsea and PSG, has scored twice for Zinedine Zidane's side in 40 appearances this season.
