Manchester United leading the race to sign French defender?
Manchester United are reportedly leading the race to sign Raphael Varane from Real Madrid this summer.
The Frenchman has only 13 months remaining on his contract, and he has failed to agree terms over an extension.
Hence, Los Blancos are expected to sell him this summer, and Varane has already said his goodbyes to his teammates.
The World Cup winner has been linked with both United and Chelsea, but the former are deemed favourites to sign him.
The Red Devils failed to recruit him in 2011 and 2019, and they are planning a third attempt to land his signature.
Los Blancos are expecting a bid from the Mancunian giants. They are likely to demand around £60m for the central defender.
Aside from Varane, a number of Madrid players could head for the exit door as part of the summer rebuild planned.
It is uncertain whether Zinedine Zidane will remain the manager, but the club are planning a major spending spree.
