Raphael Varane Latest

Having wrapped, well almost, the signing of Phil Jones, the transfer grapevine still has us linked with another young centre-back.

The youngster in question is the Lens centre-back, Raphael Varane.

At eighteen years of age, Varane is tipped as one for the future but despite rumours of United being prepared to offer something akin to 9 million for the player, it`s a deal that might very well hit problems.

With United having a quartet of classy centre-backs, Varane has expressed a desire to play regular football, something that might not be the case at Old Trafford, commenting about a possible move,

"I know I have the choice. I can sign for a foreign club and move abroad, or I could join another club in Ligue 1."

"What interests me is playing regularly and so I have to think carefully and go to a club that will allow me to progress."

Could he be a player we purchase then park at another club to give him that regular football he craves?

He's another defender with tremendous talent and whilst we don't need a another CB at the moment I still wouldn't mind seeing us signing him. At 9 mil buy him and give Lens the option to have him on loan until Ferdinand or O'Shea decide to leave us and we're in a dire need of him.

From what i have read he, as well as Jones, can play as a DM and he has scored a few goals from headers, although at 6'3" thats not a surprise. Although i have not seen him play, from the reports this could be a good signing. I have also read that he may be loaned out to a french club thus satisfying his thirst for football
