It has been reported by The Daily Star that Real Madrid star Raphaël Varane is rumoured to be involved with a move to Manchester United.

It is currently unknown if a bid is ready, or it’s value by Manchester United for the 23 year old Defender, which would end a 6 year spell at his current club. He first played for Real Madrid in 2011. If the rumours are correct, this is very good news for Manchester United fans as they could see their recent good form extended.

Real Madrid fans will be hoping the rumours are proven false, as they won’t want to gamble their recent good form by losing a player.

In their last 5 games, Real Madrid have managed 3 wins, 2 draws, and no losses. Manchester United have recorded 3 wins, 2 draws, and no losses.

Raphaël Varane has been at Real Madrid since 2011 and has scored 8 goals in over 160 games. He also represents the France national team, and has over 30 international caps with 2 goals in those appearances (at the time of writing).
