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?
