According to L'Equipe today's edition, 28-year old French international centre-back Raphael Varane, as reported on the front page of the paper, is ready to pack his bag and land onto Manchester United facilities. After a very long negotiation, which Paris Saint-Germain had tried to meddle with, RC Lens alumni is parting ways with Real Madrid, after a whole decade spent as a powerhouse for Merengues, and is going to be purchased by Red Devils on a resounding 60 million euros transfer fee, give or take.

Regarded as one of the best backliners of his generation all around the football world, Varane is one of those rare players who has basically won everything, and, what's more, much before hitting his thirties. While across his Blancos tenures he achieved the tune of eighteen titles overall, including three La Liga ones and, what's more impressive than anything else, four Champions League editions, he also won FIFA World Cup 2018 as a regular starter, and a total key factor for Les Bleus.

On their hand, Manchester United, which have just signed Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund, are clearly planning to get back on top, both Premier League and European cups-wise, by fetching an undisputed top-tier player such as Raphael Varane, who's going to earn an even higher annual salary than the 12 million euros one he's making right now.
