DONE DEAL? Real Madrid agree to sell 'pushy' Varane to Man Utd

Real Madrid are selling Raphael Varane to Manchester United this week.

AS says Real Madrid have accepted defeat in attempts to secure Varane to a new contract and are now finalising his sale to United.

Varane has agreed a €12m-a-year contract offer from United, which are now haggling over a price with Real.

Real wish €50m to sell, though United are insisting on something lower given they could secure Varane to a pre-contract from January 1 ahead of signing him for nothing next summer. Their last offer was for €45m plus €5m in bonuses.

Varane is pushing both clubs to find an agreement this week as he doesn't wish to return to Valdebebas to start his preseason training.
