Varane: I chose Real Madrid after Man Utd signed Jones
Varane was wanted by both giants as he considered leaving Lens.
He told L'Equipe: "PSG? The project there wasn't clear. The Qataris had only just arrived and it was all very vague.
"My first reaction when Real wanted to sign me was not, 'Of course I will go'. I only made my decision when I knew that the coach wanted me to play in the first team."
