It’s looking increasingly likely that, a method or another, Varane will find yourself at Old Trafford before the approaching season.
Reports from Marca suggest Real Madrid have accepted that the centre-back wants to experience the Premier League which a deal is probably going .
But the Spanish outlet also report that United are getting to play the long game over Varane as they appear to scale back the quantity they’re going to need to pay.
According to AS, United and Real Madrid are still around €20million apart in their valuation of Varane, which leaves the deal uncomplete.
But the Marca report claims United are getting to use a replacement negotiating tactic to land Varane on a budget .
The Premier League club know that Real Madrid will need to sell Varane this summer if they need to avoid losing him for free of charge , particularly given Varane wants a Premier League move and has ignored a offer throughout this summer.
And with no other club seriously interested at now , United are reportedly getting to run the clock down and permit Real Madrid to face the truth of probably having to stay the defender only to lose him for free of charge next summer.
The Reds hope which will be enough to bring Real Madrid’s selling price closer to theirs, but, of course, Los Blancos could well have a trick or two of their own up their sleeve with experienced negotiator Florentino Perez at the helm.
And it wouldn’t be a surprise if we see other clubs linked with a move for Varane as Real Madrid look to crank up United’s anxiety over the deal.
