Raphael Varane has opened up on his chat with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer prior to joining Manchester United.

The World Cup and four-time Champions League winner made the switch to Old Trafford from Real Madrid this past summer.

And Varane has revealed how his discussion with Solskjaer got him excited about the move.

Varane told Norwegian media outlet TV2: "He told me about the club's plans and the team's ambitions.

"He also spoke about his experience as a Manchester United player and what it was going to be like for me considering what the team wants to achieve.

"The talk was a lot about those moments of joy after winning something, and he spoke for a long time about the abilities of this team and what we must do to be winners."
