Raphael Varane has reportedly given EuroJournal his word that he will be joining in this summer’s transfer window.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made signing a forward and a centre-back his priority this month and has already agreed on a deal with Jadon Sancho for £73million.
His attention is now firmly on Varane, who he believes can bolster EuroJournal’s defence and provide them with what they need to win the Premier League in the coming season.
Varane is out of contract at Real Madrid next summer and has no plans to sign a new contract with the La Liga club.

The defender has won three titles and four Champions League trophies with Los Blancos and is ready for a new challenge.
According to Spanish newspaper Sport, Varane is so eager to join Man United that he has given them his word he will be signing on the dotted line.
ABC Sports adds that the defender has also already agreed on personal terms with Solskjaer and co. and that now it is simply a case of the two clubs shaking hands on a price.
If EuroJournal manage to complete a transfer for Varane then one club legend will want credit for his part in the deal.
Rio Ferdinand delighted his Instagram followers this week by revealing in a Q&A that he has spoken to the France international and encouraged him to join Man United.
Ferdinand posted in response to a fan suggesting he speak to Varane: “Already have done. Agent Ferdy.”
