PREMIER - Varane, Manchester United on the second attempt
Manchester United knocked on Raphael Varane's ten years ago. The central defender remembers “TV2”: “It's true that my family and I met Sir Alex Ferguson and that was a great experience for me.
But then nothing more happened and in the end Real Madrid was on the mat. The rest of the story is known. I had a great time in Madrid and that was probably my fate back then. "
When the Red Devils asked again this summer, the discussions quickly became more specific. Varane, who was tied to Real for another year, saw the time to move: “I think I needed a new challenge and I wanted to experience the Premier League. Manchester United is a club with a long history and they want to get back to the top, that appealed to me. "
