The two clubs have announced the 28-year-old defender will be moving to the Premier League, with final terms now being ironed out
Manchester United have confirmed an agreement with Real Madrid for the signing of Raphael Varane.
The 28-year-old centre-back will become Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s second major signing of the summer after the arrival of Jadon Sancho earlier in the month.
The two clubs agreed a fee, understood to be £34million ($47m) plus add ons, on Monday and the deal is now subject to medical before Varane signs what will be a four-year contract at Old Trafford.
A statement from the Premier League club read: "Manchester United is delighted to announce the club has reached agreement with Real Madrid for the transfer of French international defender and World Cup winner, Raphael Varane, subject to a medical and to player terms being finalised."
Real Madrid also confirmed the deal, with a statement reading: "Our club thanks the player for his professionalism and exemplary conduct throughout his ten seasons representing our colours, during which time he has won 18 titles: four Champions Leagues, four Club World Cups, three UEFA Super Cups, three Liga titles, one Copa del Rey and three Spanish Super Cups.
"Real Madrid would like to express their gratitude to Varane and his family and wish him the best of luck in this new stage of his career."
