Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane had been in media for some weeks, with many tabloids reporting that he’s set to sign for Manchester United.

Despite strong links with Varane, United and Real Madrid are yet to reach an agreement for the 28-year-old.

Manchester United have offered Varane a €12 million per annum contract, at least €3 million more than Real’s renewal offer, and he’s decided on a move to Old Trafford.

However, Varane is waiting for United to make everything official.

According to the magazine Madridista Real:

“Varane’s discussions with United have been positive, but they tell us that his decision is NOT made yet, he will do so within a few hours of receiving a formal offer from the English club.

“He has never asked for more money, he only asked for time to think about his future.”
