MANCHESTER UNITED are battling with Liverpool and Paris Saint-Germain to sign Real Madrid star centre-back Raphael Varane, according to the reports.
The French defender has been tipped to leave the Santiago Bernabeu, with Liverpool and Man Utd are believed to be his favoured destination.
Man Utd manager Jose Mourinho is believed to be a huge admirer of the France international defender, with the Special One handing Varane his debut at the Los Blancos.
And according to the bookies, PSG, Man Utd and Liverpool are leading the race to sign the 24-year-old Real Madrid star this summer.
BetStars spokesman Ian Marmion said: “Manchester United and PSG are going head-to-head in a battle for Real Madrid centre-back Raphael Varane.
“The two clubs are priced at 4/1 apiece to be the French defenders next club.
“United are keen to reinforce their back line and have struggled with injuries to their key defenders this season.
“Varane would be keen to reunite with Jose Mourinho – who handed the 24-year-old his first game at Real Madrid.
“The defender could also be tempted with a move back to his home country and PSG are first in line should Varane head to France.
“Manchester City and Liverpool have also expressed an interest in the Frenchman and are priced at 6/1 and 9/1 respectively.”
