After failing to win the signature of now former Real Madrid players, Gareth Bale and Sergio Reguilon, in the summer transfer window, Man United are now set to return for the service of Raphael Varane in the coming transfer window.
Fans and pundits have lost confidence in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s defence especially after suffering two humiliating defeats against Crystal Palace and Tottenham this season.
The Red Devils were only able to bring in a left-back, Alex Telles, and sold Chris Smalling out to make them short in the centre-back. This is the reason why manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer must bring in someone.

Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane is reported by Spanish outlet Mundi Deportivo as the target for the Red Devils with clams that they are keeping a close eye on him and the situations surrounding his contract with the Los Blancos.
Raphael Varane’s contract with Real Madrid ends in 2022 but there is yet to be talks of a new one and that opens up the chances that he will be available in the summer transfer window.
Man United can still boast of Marco Rojo and Phil Jones but both players could leave the club any time soon as their services might no longer be needed.
