Raphael Varane is poised to join Manchester United as the Red Devils look to make their second statement signing.
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s recruitment plans are taking shape, with Raphael Varane expected to join Jadon Sancho at the Premier League giants.
Following the completion of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s signing of Jadon Sancho, Raphael Varane is set to join Manchester United. Following their chase for England winger and former Manchester City prospect Sancho, the Premier League giants are set to make their second ‘statement signing’ of the summer transfer season with the arrival of Real Madrid defender Varane.
Adidas and Manchester United have unveiled their official 2021/22 home jersey, which features a modern take on the club’s traditional designs.
United’s season is only going better, with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer signing a new contract that will keep him at Old Trafford until 2024, with an option for another year.
Solskjaer’s contract extension comes just one day after Manchester United announced the £73 million signing of Sancho, after a long pursuit of the 21-year-old after refusing to reach Borussia Dortmund’s £108 million value last summer.
Sancho’s signing is being viewed as a power move by United, who have dropped the price tag by £35 million to secure a player regarded as one of the most exciting young talents in the world, having been tipped for big things at City just a few years ago.
According to the Manchester Evening News, Varane is anticipated to be the next player through the Old Trafford gates, and the transfer will be a similar statement of determination as Solskjaer’s side looks to return to the top of domestic and European football.
The signings of Sancho and Varane demonstrate United’s resurgence as a power in luring top talent in different ways.
After refusing to pay over the odds last summer, the Red Devils have landed Sancho after years of spending big transfer fees for established talents who typically fail to live up to expectations.
The winger left Manchester City as a teenager for the Bundesliga in 2017, but United has persuaded him back to the city.
Sancho has been on Solskjaer’s radar since his days as caretaker manager, and he sees him as a quintessential United player in line with the club’s offensive traditions.
Varane has already enjoyed ten years, whereas Sancho is expected to have a good future. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
