Manchester United revive deal for Real Madrid star Raphael Varane, secret talks heldPublished August 26, 2016
The last week of the summer transfer window could bring exciting news for Manchester United fans.
The Red Devils have spent the summer attracting some of the world’s biggest stars, with the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Paul Pogba making the move to Old Trafford.
But despite some superstar signings, it seems that United boss Jose Mourinho, isn’t quite finished yet, and could be set to make one last big name signing.
According to reports on social media, a deal to sign highly-rated French centre-back Raphael Varane has been revived, with the Old Trafford hierarchy locked in secret talks to try and thrash out a deal with Varane’s club side Real Madrid.
Spanish outlet AS claimed this week that Jose Mourinho is eyeing a reunion with the highly rated centre-back after the pair worked together in Madrid.
It’s understood that whilst the defender would like to stay in the Spanish capital, he isn’t prepared to sit on the bench all season, and would find a move to Manchester United appealing.
