Raphael Varane “grows impatient” as negotiations over his alleged transfer to Manchester United continue.
The Real Madrid defender has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford ten years after Los Blancos beat the Red Devils to his signing.
It is widely reported that the 28-year-old is keen to join Man United and is happy with the terms they are offering him, while Real are keen to sell the player in the final year of his contract with the Bernabeu.
However, AS reports that Varane wants the deal to be done as soon as possible so he can travel directly to England and train with his new teammates.
He adds that Varane is due to return to Real Madrid training on Wednesday after his vacation after competing in Euro 2020 and therefore faces the prospect of two different pre-seasons.
He’s not going anywhere until the two clubs agree on a price.
The report states that Real Madrid want € 60million (around £ 51.7million), however, Man United only pledged to pay € 50million (around £ 43.1million). ) until now.
Varane would bring great experience to the Man United squad after winning three La Liga titles, four Champions Leagues and a Copa del Rey. He was also part of the France team that won the World Cup in 2018.
However, Danny Mills has doubts whether Varane would be able to handle the intensity of the Premier League.
He told talkSPORT: “If all these other teams get stronger they are also more likely to take points at Manchester United.
“Their away record Manchester United was also superb and I don’t think it will be the same, especially with the fans coming back and everything that is happening.
“Yes, it’s a good signing, but was it the right signing?
“Varane is a good player, but again we don’t know what he will look like or how robust he will be in the Premier League week after week.
“He’s used to playing eight tough games a season, plus the Champions League.
“Him and [Sergio] Ramos could spend matches at Real Madrid with a cigar. You can’t do that in the Premier League.
“Every foreign player who comes, [Kai] Havertz and [Timo] Werner said, “we didn’t realize the intensity of every game.”
