It is believed Varane's valuation could be the stumbling block over an agreement, with ABC claiming United and Real are still haggling over a price for the Frenchman.

Meanwhile, Los Blancos, who recently lost Sergio Ramos on a free transfer to Paris Saint-Germain are understood to be ready to cash in on the 28-year-old but are demanding a fee of €50million while Unite are offering €45m.

The development surrounding Varane's transfer comes only days after United wrapped up a deal for Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund.
