Lately, a trusted French journalist Le Parisien reported that talks were rapidly moving ahead for an agreement over a transfer fee.
However, in a few hours, the journalist reported that a transfer fee of €45 million has been successfully agreed between Manchester United and Real Madrid.
It’s believed that Manchester United had already agreed on personal terms with the Frenchman before he returned from a break after taking part in the European Championship competition.
Manchester United are keen on strengthening their squad especially the defense ahead of next season. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes that signing Raphael Varane will solve tbe problem of providing an ideal partner for Harry Maguire.
Real Madrid on the other hand are keen on selling the defender who has only one year remaining in his current contract this summer to avoid losing him for free next season.
