Raphael Varane, a long-term Man United transfer target, is reportedly inching closer to sealing a move to Old Trafford.
The Red Devils are understood to be working around the clock to get the deal over the line after supposedly agreeing personal terms with the Frenchman.
Varane has already entered the final year of his current deal at Real and is believed to have turned down an extension in order to complete a move to the Premier League.
Despite the recent development surrounding his future, Metro UK reports the experienced defender is expected to link up with his Real teammates for pre-season training after his much-needed post-Euros break.
However, AS claims the France international is not keen to begin his pre-season with the La Liga giants as he prefers to head straight to the Premier League.
The publication further added a final agreement between United and Real could happen in the coming hours with a fee in the region of €50m being cited.
What Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said
When asked about the possibility of signing Varane, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was coy on the question as he quickly dodged it. Solskkjaer was quoted saying:
"I will talk about players when we sign them, not while they’re at another club."
Man United step closer to signing Varane
Legit.ng earlier reported that Real Madrid are said to have given Manchester United the green light to sign Raphael Varane this summer but the Premier League outfit is yet to make a move.
The defender's body language confirms he wanted to quit Los Blancos despite having 12 more months on his current deal with them.
Having won four Champions League and other domestic and continental silverware with them, he is looking for a new challenge elsewhere.
