Manchester United formalized, Saturday, August 14, the arrival of French world champion Raphaël Varane for a period of four years, from Real Madrid. The 28-year-old defender, whose the departure of Real for England was validated for several days, is now linked to Mancuniens until June 2025.
It was presented at Old Trafford on the sidelines of the Leeds reception on Saturday noon. “The opportunity to come and play in the Premier League was something I couldn’t refuse”, reacted Varane in a statement published on the site of his new club. Varane could not be aligned as soon as the Premier League resumed on Saturday, failing to complete all the procedures relating to his transfer (visa, quarantine, health protocol …) on time.
The other flagship rookie of the Red Devils, the Englishman Jadon Sancho, snatched from Dortmund for 85 million euros, appears well, for his part, on the scoresheet.
“He won everything there is to gain”
Raphaël Varane, vice-captain of the sacred France team in 2018 at the World Cup, arrived at Real Madrid at 18 years old. There he won four Champions League and three Spanish championships, in particular, during his golden decade spent at the club merengue.
“He’s won everything there is to win, but I know he’s still determined to be successful. I can’t wait to welcome him to the team “, reacted his new trainer, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
In the north-west of England, Varane finds two compatriots, midfielder Paul Pogba and striker Anthony Martial, unless one of the two Blues – or both – leaves the club by the end of the transfer window. According to the British press, his transfer would be around 40 million euros, excluding bonuses.
