Manchester United supporters are excited by the prospect of Harry Maguire’s potential partnership with Raphael Varane next season.
The MEN revealed on Monday that United are close to agreeing personal terms with the Real Madrid centre-back after his relatively early exit from the European Championship with France and that news has unsurprisingly stirred excitement on social media.
Varane has just one year remaining on his current deal with Madrid and United view him as their priority centre-back signing this summer – the Frenchman’s preference is to join United following his holiday, which suggests a deal could be completed soon.
Although discussions between Madrid and United are progressing ‘pretty slowly’, the fresh details have been enough to encourage fans that Varane could play in red next term, which has caused them to dream about the prospect of a partnership with Maguire.
