Ligue 1 defender Raphael Varane has reportedly been contacted by Manchester United, and is considering a move to Old Trafford over interest from Arsenal and Bayern Munich.
Sir Alex Ferguson reportedly sees the 18-year-old as perfect to develop at Manchester United, after the wonderkid starred for French side Lens in his debut season.
“There's no promises from Manchester United. There has been contact from Manchester United's side, but also from other clubs,” Varane said, as reported by the Daily Mirror, hinting at the interest from Arsenal.
“I do like the Premier League. But there's also interest from Spain and Germany. I don't like one competition in particular.”
While Arsenal has reportedly shown interest in Varane, with Arsene Wenger keen to develop the youngster into a star, but United are keen that they can trump any offer Arsenal put forward with their massive summer transfer budget.
