Lens defender Varane: Man Utd or Bayern Munich

Lens defender Raphael Varane is considering offers from Manchester United and Bayern Munich.

Varane admits he could sign for another club and be loaned back, which may yet see him joining either United or Bayern.

"Am I going to improve in Ligue 1, and reach a new step? I have to make a choice. I can sign aboard and be loaned, or join another Ligue 1 club, or even remain at Lens," he said.

"We talked about a departure and it seems there is no hostility from the club, even if I remain under contract.

"Interest from Bayern or Man Utd? It is greatly flattering to hear those names, and I even ask myself if that is really about me.

"But I can't dream. I have to think about it and join a club that will allow me to improve.

"Remaining in Ligue 1 seems to be the more sensible choice. The most important thing to me is time spent on the pitch."
