According to an Italian journalist, Fabrizio Romano, Manchester United are preparing paperwork for Raphael Varane.

The 28-year-old has been United’s main transfer target since they ended their long-running pursuit of Jadon Sancho, but it doesn’t look as if this saga will drag on for anywhere near as long.

Romano said official announcement after details will be sorted with Real Madrid in the next days.

“Fee around €50m including add ons as part of the negotiation. Here-we-go. Varane camp still waiting for quarantine rules to decide about medicals, but he’s expected to fly to England this week.” he added
