After spending 10 amazing years in the Spanish capital, Raphael Varane decided to join English club Manchester United. It was made official by the Spanish club on 27th of July. And, the transfer fee is 50M euros. This was the player’s decision too. But, the Frenchman had also stated that he respects Real Madrid and won’t push the board for the deal. Meanwhile, one more year was left in Varane’s contract. He had the contract till 2022. Moreover, Raphael Varane said that he wants the Premier League challenge. So, he wanted to join Manchester United.
Probably, Real Madrid also wanted to sell the player as the club is running on the debt. Despite being one of the best clubs, Real Madrid are going through the heavy debt. So, they need huge sum of money for strengthening the squad. Moreover, the another reason to sell Raphael Varane is that Real Madrid already has 3 good center backs. Also, they signed David Alaba this season in a free transfer. Now, there are Nacho, Eder Militao, David Alaba available. So, the Real Madrid board found it wise to sell Raphael Varane to Manchester United.

Its a thing to see how the Frenchman performs in the Premier League. He will be coupled with their another center back Harry Maguire. Varane has to face the top as well as mediocre clubs there. He hasn’t faced Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Harry Kane, Son, Gabriel Jesus more frequently. Now, its time for the ex Real Madrid player to prove his worth in Manchester United.
