Manchester United have reached agreement with Real Madrid for the sale of Raphael Varane.

Manchester United announced on Tuesday that a deal has been agreed with Real Madrid for Varane, with a medical expected to be completed soon.

The deal is thought to be worth an initial £34m, with add-ons taking it up to around £42m.

Meanwhile, Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has wasted no time to chat with his countryman ahead of his move to Old Trafford.

Pogba, who is on holiday in Miami, uploaded a picture on his Instagram showing him chatting with Varane, and both players seemed to be having a good laugh.

Both players represented France in the Euros, but the Les Bleus were knocked out in the round of 16.

The duo will reunite at Old Trafford next month, but it’s yet to be seen if Pogba will remain as a Manchester United player, with persistent links with PSG. Pogba has also refused to sign a new deal and has just one year left in his contract.
