Premier League side Manchester United has confirmed they’ve agreed a deal to sign Rafael Varane from Real Madrid.
Varane’s contract with United will be on a four-year deal with an option to extend until the summer of 2026. The Frenchman now needs to agree personal terms and pass a medical at Old Trafford before completing the move to the Red Devils.
“Manchester United is delighted to announce the club has reached an agreement with Real Madrid for the transfer of French international defender and World Cup winner, Raphaël Varane, subject to a medical and to player terms being finalized,” a statement from the club said.
According to reports, the 28-year-old is expected to earn €250,000 per week at United in what will be double what he was pocketing at Los Blancos.
