Manchester United are reportedly close to signing Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane ahead of next season.

According to Goal, Manchester United and Real Madrid are close to agreeing a deal for Varane between €45m (£39/$53m) and €55m (£47m/$65m).

The 28 year old France international has reportedly agreed a five year deal to join Manchester United.

Below are some of the shirt numbers Varane could wear at Manchester United:

Varane wears No 4 while on international duty with France and could request to wear the number at Manchester United.

However, the shirt is currently occupied by Phil Jones, who has been sidelined with an injury for more than a year.

Varane could request to wear the no.12 shirt based on its similarity to the No.2 shirt he previously wore at Real Madrid. He has opted for No 5 since 2016, but Maguire is the current holder at Old Trafford.

The other shirt numbers available for Varane are No.24, No.16, No.22 and No.32.
