Man Utd able to low-ball Real Madrid for Varane fee

Manchester United have been able to low-ball Real Madrid over a fee for Raphael Varane.

The Mirror says Real Madrid have accepted a £35m offer plus add-ons from United for Varane after weeks of discussions as the 28-year-old made it clear he wanted to leave the Bernabeu this summer to seek a new challenge.

Carlo Ancelotti's men did not want Varane to walk for free next summer when his deal was set to run out as they were in desperate need of funds. United's payments will be spread out over a number of years.

Varane will sign a four-year deal, with an option of a fifth year, meaning that the defender will be at Old Trafford for the long haul.
