Manchester United is in final negotiations to buy Raphael Varane from Real Madrid for approximately £40 million.

Varane will be United's third acquisition of the summer. Last week, Jadon Sancho completed his £73 million move from Borussia Dortmund, and they have also re-signed the goalkeeper Tom Heaton, following his departure from Burnley.

Varane joined Real Madrid from Lens in 2011.
