Real Madrid boss Zidane pushed about Man Utd link for Varane

Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has dismissed talk of losing Raphael Varane to Manchester United.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side have long coveted the French centre-half and were reportedly readying an offer ahead of the January transfer window.

Zidane said: "He is part of this club, we were very lucky to be able to bring him to Madrid.

"He has a great career, he's achieved a lot since he's been here. Of course, he is non-transferable for the club, for the coach that I am, for people in general.

"That's clear and unambiguous. Now we can't stop people from talking. They're not just talking about Varane, but about all the players, Real Madrid ones and others.

"But for Varane, my position is clear, and it's the same as the club's position."
