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.
