After weeks of negotiating, Manchester United finally reached an agreement to sign their most recent transfer from Spanish football. 

Manchester United just announced their most recent transfer after weeks of negotiation with Real Madrid. We are obviously talking about Raphael Varane, a world-class defender. The Red Devils are slowly becoming one of the most important players in the summer transfer window with Jadon Sancho and Varane getting announced in the span of two weeks. Although we don’t think they will be the only ones making moves. It is also refreshing to see that the club is not wasting any time as they did when Ed Woodward was in charge.

This decision-making power is very reminiscent to the days when Sir Alex Ferguson called the shots at United. When the Scotsman wanted a player, he immediately made the moves to get him no matter what. Varane comes at a perfect time in his professional career and with a fantastic CV under his belt. As a Real Madrid player, he was a key player in his former side’s three consecutive Champions League titles. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer must be thrilled to have such an important defender under his command. 

Varane’s deal in more detail. 

According to reports from Spain, the final deal was closed for €50 million as a much-needed transfer that Los Blancos welcome. During the pandemic, Real Madrid was one of the few clubs that didn’t end up indebted due to their modest approach to transfers in the last three windows. However, this doesn’t mean that the crisis didn’t affect their economy. In fact, they finished the most recent fiscal year with less than €1 million above the red line.

The investment United made will help Real Madrid get a proper chance to finally make an offer to boy Kylian Mbappe. United made the announcement through their official website just minutes ago: ​​”Manchester United is delighted to announce the club has reached agreement with Real Madrid for the transfer of French international defender and World Cup winner, Raphaël Varane, subject to a medical and to player terms being finalised.”
