RAPHAEL VARANE IS expected to become a Manchester United player within days after the club agreed a deal with Real Madrid worth around £41m (€48m), including add-ons, to bring the French World Cup winner to Old Trafford.

With personal terms between Varane and United already believed to be agreed in principle, all that remains in the way of confirmation of the move is a medical and the physical signing of paperwork.

Varane is said to have already made arrangements to travel to Manchester despite training with his current employers again on Monday.

The 28-year-old may have to quarantine before training with United upon the completion of the move.

Varane, who is out of contract at the end of the season, has won 18 trophies (including Spanish Super Cups) at Real Madrid, scoring 17 goals in 360 first-team appearances.

He would become United’s third first-team singing of the summer following the arrivals of England internationals Tom Heaton and Jadon Sancho.
