Varane, unexpected ally

The new Manchester United signing, and already a former Real Madrid player, was speaking through a video call with Paul Pogba, who posted a photo on his social networks.


This past July 27, the end of a stage was consummated. After Sergio Ramos left for PSG, Raphael Varane followed in his footsteps, leaving Real Madrid, in his case, to sign for Manchester United. That was how the closure was put on one of the most illustrious couples in the white defense. Of course, the sale of the French central left a good pinch to the coffers of the Madrid club (50 million euros).

Just over 24 hours after his announcement as a new Red Devils player, Varane has already been getting acquainted with his new team. So much so that he has had a conversation through a video call with his compatriot Paul Pogba. It was the French midfielder himself who was in charge of immortalizing that moment, posting a photo on his Instagram stories.

An image that, of course, has caused the appearance of numerous rumors, pointing above all in the same direction: will Pogba end up staying at United? The truth is that, for the moment, the operation on his possible departure to PSG seems not to advance, although from England they already assumed that the Red Devils were taking over and waiting for an offer from the Parisian entity. Who knows if the investment made by Sancho and Varane ends up convincing the French midfielder to stay at Old Trafford for at least one more year.

Solskjaer on Varane: "Ferguson was very close to signing him"

Raphael Varane's new coach, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, wanted to welcome his brand new signing. Speaking to The Athletic, the Norwegian was full of praise for the French central defender, acknowledging that Sir Alex Ferguson had already followed him for many years, even that he was close to closing his arrival at United before he left for Real Madrid. "I am very happy that we have reached an agreement with Real Madrid. He is a born winner. He is a player we have been following for many years. Sir Alex (Ferguson) was very close to closing his signing. With him we can play as different ways, "said Solskjaer.
