Manchester United must concentrate on signing their ‘dream’ centre-back Raphael Varane this summer, as Wes Brown claims.
Real Madrid turned down an approach from the Red Devils for the defensive star last year even though the Premier League giants were willing to pay £100 million for the France international.
Manchester United saw two bids in January for Kalidou Koulibaly rejected, but are expected to reignite their interest in the Senegalese this summer.
And the dream defender for Manchester United would be Raphael Varane, who would cost a lot but he would be the right fit for the Red Devils as Phil Jones and Chris Smalling have failed to prove their quality.
It’s arguable to say so, as Manchester United have a lot of defenders to choose from, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will want players to justify their positions on the pitch.
It is bizarre that Manchester United have not been able to find a regular centre-back – the problem Jose Mourinho tried to solve during past transfer window.
It must also be admitted that it was challenging for the Portuguese to choose the perfect partnership due to injuries, but the players also failed to deliver the quality the Portuguese was asking them.
The caretaker boss Ole Gunnar solksjaer, who dropped several hints over his wish to become the permanent manager at Old Trafford, will try to find out who is the best partnership and the defenders will all be fighting for places which will provide high competition and is actually good for the team.
