Real Madrid to hold talks with United target

Published Add your comment

Real Madrid are set to hold contract talks with Raphael Varane amidst continued interest from Manchester United.

TalkSPORT reports that the Red Devils attempted to land the young Frenchman back in 2011, before losing out to the La Liga giants thanks to an intervention from Zinedine Zidane.

Despite the change in manager at Old Trafford, new boss David Moyes is still thought to be keen on the 20-year-old, and follow the example set by Sir Alex Ferguson by monitoring the player.

Varane still has four-years left on his contract at the Santiago Bernabeu, but Carlo Ancelotti is eager to ward off interest by offering the former Lens starlet and two-year extension and improved financial terms.

Manchester United already have several top-class youngsters on their books, with Phil Jones and Chris Smalling regarded as stars of the future in the Premier League.

Varane, who is one of world football’s top talents, would certainly add greater depth to the champions’ ranks in central defence, although the Red Devils certainly seem a long way off a signature at this stage.
