Man Utd hero Evra: Varane similar to Ferdinand

Manchester United Champions League winner Patrice Evra has likened Raphael Varane to Rio Ferdinand.

Departing Real Madrid defender Varane is joining United this week.

Evra told The Athletic: "Varane reminds me of Rio Ferdinand. Great with the ball, great in the air.

"He's the complete centre-back. I remember my first game with (him for) the French national team and I was so impressed.

"He was so young yet so good with the ball, so fast and his anticipation was perfect.

"He's calm with the ball and he can score too. It's a top, top signing for Manchester United."
