Manchester United agree £42m fee for Real Madrid defender Raphaël Varane
Varane completes Man Utd medical with announcement imminent
Raphael Varane to Manchester United transfer is ten years in the making after Sir Alex Ferguson 'hurtled down to Lille' only to be pipped by Zinedine Zidane and Real Madrid
Man Utd news: Varane injured on France duty but no need to not worry
A routine ball across the area evaded Varane, leaving Bukayo Saka free to fire a strike towards goal from close-range.
Varane looks set to leave Real after entering the final year of his contract at the Bernabeu.
Varane is expected to complete his move to Man Utd this week and will become one of the best-paid players in the world game when he does so.
Although David de Gea saved the strike, Nuno Tavares was on hand to stab home the loose ball to leave United with a mountain to climb.
Sir Alex, like he did with so many during his 27 years at United, was so impressed he got personally involved in the negotiations.
This means that Ronaldo is very likely to leave for free in the summer of 2022 and that leaves so many options on the table for him.
