In the quest of fortifying the defence line of the team, Manchester United have agreed a fee of £41m with Real Madrid for defender Raphael Varane.
The price for the France international is believed to be £41m including add-ons and the deal is set to go through, subject to a medical.
It is instructive to note that the club have signed England international Jadon Sancho for £73m from Borussia Dortmund, the acquisition of Varane would be a further statement of intent from United.
Varane is well established as one of the world's top defenders, having joined Real from French side Lens in the summer of 2011.
Last season, Man U used the combination of Harry Maguire, Victor Lindelof, Baily, and others in order to test run the best Central back combination.
