Man Utd encouraged as Real Madrid choose to sell Varane

Real Madrid are prepared to sell Raphael Varane this summer.

El Partidazo de COPE report that Real would be willing to listen to offers for Varane in the current transfer window and have set an asking price.

Real Madrid will seek to sell Varane for around €60m, with the French defender wanted by Manchester United.

The 28-year-old centre-back has one year remaining on his Bernabeu contract but has so far shown little inclination to extend his decade-long stay with the club.

United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will target a centre-half signing to partner with captain Harry Maguire this summer as the Old Trafford club look to challenge Manchester City for the Premier League title next season.
