Ex-Real Madrid chief Valdano declares Man Utd target Varane leaving

Former Real Madrid coach and sporting director Jorge Valdano has declared Raphael Varane is leaving the club.

Former club captain Sergio Ramos has already signed for Paris Saint-Germain while defensive partner Varane is a target for Manchester United after rejecting a new deal with the Spanish club.

It is understood United are close to agreeing personal terms with the France international as they look to further strengthen their squad after agreeing a move for Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho, says the Manchester Evening News.

Some reports in Spain have suggested Varane could yet pen a new deal at the Santiago Bernabeu, though former director Valdano insists he is leaving.

"Two titans leave Real Madrid with a strategic position in the field," he told El Transistor. "Ramos and Varane mean something similar to Chiellini and Bonucci in Italy"
