Man Utd plot Raphael Varane transfer bid in summer with Real Madrid wanting £60m for defender


MANCHESTER UNITED are back on the trail of Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane.

The Red Devils looked into signing the French centre-back three years ago but were told it would cost more than £100million.

Now, though, the 27-year-old has just over a year left on his contract and could be available for a much lower figure.

Madrid value him in the £60m bracket. But that figure is still likely to be viewed as high,  particularly with the impact of coronavirus on the transfer market.

If United do make a move, they could face competition from Paris Saint-Germain.

Varane was one of the centre-backs identified by Jose Mourinho during his last summer in charge at Old Trafford in 2018.

United were willing to spend big but the figures being quoted by Madrid put them off.

A year later they spent £80m on Harry Maguire and now boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants a new partner for the England man.

Former United defender Gary Neville said recently he felt Varane, who misses tonight’s game at  Liverpool with coronavirus, would be perfect for the club.

Sevilla’s Jules Kounde and Pau Torres, of Villarreal, are other targets.
