According to the Spanish outlet AS, Man United manager Jose Mourinho is still desperate to sign his favourite Real Madrid star Raphael Varane, who has been on the radar of Man United for the last several seasons.
Former Chelsea manager has already added four new players to his squad this summer but is believed to be willing to add one more top-class defender until the transfer window closes.
Mourinho gave Raphael Varane a chance at the La Liga giants and was key in the centre-half’s development in the Spanish capital.
With Pepe and Sergio Ramos are set to be the first choice at the Santiago Bernabeu, the French defender is usually on the bench for Zinedine Zidane’s men.
The Red Devils have already signed Eric Bailly from Villarreal this summer, but with Daley Blind believed to be allowed to find a new club, a deal for the 23-year-old Frenchman could well fit the bill at Old Trafford.
French centre-back has missed Euro 2016 tournament this summer due to injury but is widely regarded as one of the most highly rated defenders in the world after outstanding performances in La Liga.
