Manchester United acknowledge £41m fee with Real Madrid for Raphael Varane

Manchester United and Real Madrid have agreed signing for Raphael Varane.

According to Goal.com, the two clubs have agreed to a £41 million transfer fee for the 28-year-old.

The defender is set to complete his move after undergoing a medical.

The Red Devils have already splashed £73m to bring in Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund and are now set to sign another top player this summer.

United will fork out an initial transfer fee of £34m plus £7m in add-ons.

Los Blancos will shell out a solidarity payment of £1m to Varane’s former club Lens.

The talented center-back’s contract at the Santiago Bernabeu was due to expire in 2022, and he was reportedly unwilling to pen a new deal.

The Spanish giants cashed in rather than lose him for free next summer.

United has been scouring the market for a long-term partner for Harry Maguire, who has been a rock at the back since arriving from Leicester City in 2019.

Varane, who boasts of a lot of Liga and Champions League experience, looks to be the perfect partner for the England international.
