While in the past Varane has confirmed that Manchester United were seriously interested in signing him, speaking to Onze Mondial this week he revealed that he had personal talks with Sir Alex Ferguson prior to agreeing to joining Real Madrid.
Speaking to the French magazine, Varane said: “I met with Alex Ferguson with my parents…he also had a big project for me.”
The Frenchman has established himself as a key part of his national side, despite finding it difficult to dislodge incumbents Pepe and Sergio Ramos from the Real Madrid starting lineup.
That has prompted speculation linking him with a move away from the Bernabeu, and given his previous links to Manchester United, Louis van Gaal’s side are often still mentioned as potential suitors.
Reports in France this week also claim that Real Madrid are preparing a new contract offer for Pepe, which could force Varane to consider his future.
Although he’s often described as the ‘future’ of the Real Madrid defence, it’s not clear how long he’ll be happy waiting for his regular chance.
What do you think Manchester United fans! Should van Gaal make an offer?
