The 23-year-old is rated as one of the most exciting talents in world football and was dubbed the beautiful game’s ‘best young defender‘ by now-United boss Jose Mourinho back in 2014.
But the France international ended the 2015/16 campaign out of the Real Madrid starting Xi and reportedly ‘unhappy’ – regardless of the injury that has ruled him out of the 2016 European Championship.
Marca claim Varane is continuing to mull over his future at the Bernabeu, with Manchester United in line to snap up the 6 foot 2 centre-half if he decides to leave.
However, Los Blancos are expected to reject any advances for the defensive prodigy unless he actively expresses a desire to move on.
The Red Devils have already signed one defender this summer in £30million acquisition Eric Bailly, but would almost certainly be interested in Varane if he became available.
