Lens defender Raphael Varane is delighted with the interest shown in him by Manchester United and Real Madrid, but insists he is yet to make a decision surrounding his future.

The 18-year-old has caught the attention of number of Europe's elite after some superb performances with Ligue 1 this season.

However, with bids from United, Madrid and Paris Saint Germain to consider, Varane says his future is far from decided.


"I am in full consideration and no decision has been made yet. What I want is to go to the club that will make me progress the most. Another season in Ligue 1, yes, it may be beneficial but there is a choice. There are pros and cons, so it will be for me to decide," he said.

"Of course it's always nice when big teams are interested in you, especially since I'm young, so it's true that it is very flattering. I want to try something, so of course [Manchester United] would please me. It is for me to see if it interests me or not. They are a team that is one of the very best in the world; a very big club that has very high requirements."

United have already added to their ranks with the signing of Phil Jones from Blackburn Rovers, and will continue to add youth to their squad if they can land Varane.
