Manchester United are believed to be very active in the summer transfer to bolster their squad and also get ready for next season. Several names have been lined but it is understood that there are high priorities given with defence being one of them.
According to Express Sports, high up in Manchester United's wish list is Real Madrid's centre back, trophy laden and Edin Hazard's favourite teammate Raphael Varane.
In summer of 2020, Eden Hazard heaped praises on the defender and considered him to be on the same level as Vincent Kompany and John Terry - Manchester City and Chelsea legends.
The centre back has a year left in his contract with the Spanish giants. There has also been reports about financial bleak at Los Blancos and Red Devils are looking to capitalize on the two situations and bring the world cup winner to bring sanity in the defence.
Compared to Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof, Raphael Varane has committed fewer fouls overall, has been dribbled around less and generally has more pace than the two.
The 27 year old is currently earning £150k-per-week wages and he is valued at £63m by Transfermarkt ( which can reduce drastically). Therefore he will be of value to the Ole Gunnar Solkjaer side if he seals a looming deal.
