Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants to sign a new centre-back partner for Harry Maguire this summer but United are focusing their attention on Real Madrid’s Raphael Varane.

It is believed that United will sign up Varane this summer, but so far it hasn’t been a smooth process.

Former England defender Danny Mills has admitted his shock that Manchester United didn’t make a move for Brighton defender Ben White.

Arsenal have reached agreement with the Seagulls for a £50m deal for the 23-year-old, and Mills believes United would have been a better destination for the England international.

Mills told talkSPORT: “The only thing I am surprised at is Ben White has gone to Arsenal.

“Let’s assume that he will be at Arsenal for two or three years at least before he goes somewhere else. I just think he is better than that.”

Asked why White would join another club, Mills responded: “Because he has got a better chance of winning things. What is he going to win at Arsenal? League Cup, if he is lucky. Maybe the FA Cup.

“I think he is an exceptional player and I think he is a fantastic signing for Arsenal. I am just a little bit surprised that Manchester United, who are looking for a centre-half, haven’t come in for him.”
