EURO 2020

Man Utd ‘submit Raphael Varane bid’ as they target £75m double swoop

Manchester United have reportedly bid for Raphael Varane and are targeting Eduardo Camavinga in a £75million double swoop.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are looking to get their transfer business done early, after learning from their failed summer-long pursuit of Jadon Sancho last year.

With a deal for Sancho set to be completed once England’s Euro 2020 campaign is over, the Premier League giants are moving on to other targets – with Varane and Camavinga next on their list.

France star Varane has been identified as the ideal centre-half partner for Harry Maguire, with the France star expected to leave Real Madrid this summer.

And the 28-year-old’s huge experience could be complemented by the exciting youthful potential of 18-year-old midfielder Camavinga, who has emerged as a key player for Rennes over the past two seasons.

United are now making their moves for both players, having bid £50m for Varane and are ready to offer £25m for Camavinga, according to Marca.

It remains to be seen whether Madrid will accept £50m for Varane, with the La Liga giants said to be holding out for £80m.

However, the Red Devils will hope that the team’s need to finance a revamp will convince them to sell for lower their asking price, rather than risk losing him for nothing next summer once the final year of his contract is up.

Camavinga is also now in the last 12 months of his Rennes deal, which is why he could be available for a relatively modest fee – making him a cheaper alternative to Declan Rice.

However, United are set to face competition from Paris Saint-Germain and Madrid for the teenager.

And in that respect, they will hope that the prospect of playing with established France stars Paul Pogba and potentially Varane will appeal to Camavinga as he looks to further his international career.

The midfielder has earned four senior caps already for Les Bleus, but has been with the under-21s this summer rather than with Didier Deschamps’ squad at Euro 2020.

Pogba has previously talked up Camavinga, saying: “He has confidence in his qualities. He is a very good youngster, I like him enormously.”

However, United are also potentially facing a fight to keep Pogba amid reports the midfielder is open to the idea of joining PSG.
