Lens prospect Varane asks Man Utd to delay transfer talks

Lens defender Raphael Varane remains a target for Manchester United.

The Guardian says United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has also lined up a potential £8m move for the 18-year-old Lens defender Varane.

Phil Jones's arrival on a five-year contract is unlikely to dilute that interest, especially with United's defensive options being reduced by the imminent departures of Wes Brown and John O'Shea to Sunderland.

Varane has offers elsewhere and has asked for permission to wait until he has finished his baccalaureate exams before making his decision.
