Man Utd to return for Varane in January?

Varane could join Man Utd in January

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho will revive his interest in Real Madrid's Raphael Varane in the January transfer window. The Frenchman declined the Red Devils' approach last month despite being offered a bumper contract.

Varane, 23, has iterated that he is content at the Bernabeu after he was promised a regular role under Zinedine Zidane.

Widespread sources suggest the 'Special One' will be keeping tabs on the player's situation in the coming months with a view to a winter offer for his signature.

The centre-half has started alongside Sergio Ramos in the opening games of the new season, but his situation could well change, once Pepe returns to full fitness after an extended rest for his Euro 2016 success with Portugal.

United were willing to offer wages of £150,000-a-week to Varane which is nearly is double of his current salary, and such a package could be tempting, should his playing time be restricted at the European champions.
