According to reports, Manchester United have been given the green light to sign Real Madrid centre-back Raphael Varane.

Report from Manchester Evening News claim the Los Blancos would be open to selling the Frenchman for less than £100million.

The 27-year-old is considered to be one of the best centre-backs in world football.

The club tried to sign Varane way back in 2011 under Sir Alex Ferguson, but we were beaten to the player’s signature behind the scenes.

The Red devils instead bought Phil Jones from Blackburn.
