Raphael Varane praises Paul Pogba’s passion and leadership while also revealing his role in convincing him to join Manchester United.

Raphael Varane has complimented Paul Pogba’s ‘good’ influence on Manchester United’s squad.

And the newcomer to Manchester United said that his fellow countryman impacted his decision to quit Real Madrid for the Premier League.

Varane spoke to Premier League World prior to Les Bleus’ 2-1 triumph over Spain in Sunday’s Uefa Nations League final.

“He (Pogba) spoke to me about the club, about the atmosphere, about the expectations, and, of course, he is a magnificent player,” said the centre-back, who is hoping to be fit for Saturday’s match against Leicester City.

“He’s got a lot of energy, a lot of positive energy, and he’s the leader of the group.”

Varane began his senior playing career with Lens in France when he was 17 years old, and he moved to England this summer after ten years in LaLiga.

He has enjoyed significant success in Spain and on the international level with current clubmate Pogba.

Both were members of France’s World Cup-winning team in Russia, which defeated Croatia 4-2 in the final.

Pogba, who cost £89 million, has eight assists and one goal in 13 appearances across all competitions this season.

The midfielder, whose current agreement with Manchester United expires next summer, has reportedly been offered a new deal worth £104 million.

Varane, who has one assist in five games since joining United for £42 million, is only concerned with his future with Ole Gunnar Solksjaer’s team.

“Being at the top with a team like Man United is a big responsibility,” said the defender, who won 18 major titles with Real Madrid, including four Champions Leagues.

“I get the idea that everyone at this club wants to win and achieve great things.”

“I want to improve, I want to push myself to make progress, and I want to be a better person.”
