Pires: Man Utd signing Varane and Maguire will be excellent together

Arsenal hero Robert Pires is backing Raphael Varane for success with Manchester United.

Pires believes Varane will have no problem acclimatising to England's top division and that he will be a success under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

He said: "Yes, Raphael will certainly adapt to English football. Surely there will be matches in which he will suffer physical clashes, but he is now a player of great experience. I see him well paired with (Harry) Maguire, they will form an excellent duo."

After losing Sergio Ramos on a free transfer earlier in the window, Pires was surprised Real Madrid let Varane leave too.

"On my part there was a bit of surprise. In my opinion, president Perez wants to renew his team, but replacing Ramos and Varane will not be easy. For sure, the signing of David Alaba is a good choice."
