RAPHAEL VARANE’S agents want to meet with Manchester United this week, according to reports.
The centre-back is said to have snubbed a two-year contract extension at Real Madrid and has decided he wants to move to the Premier League instead of Paris Saint-Germain.
And his representatives reportedly want to finalise a deal to take him to Old Trafford ‘in the coming days’.
Varane, 28, has one year left on his Los Blancos contract.
But the France international is unhappy Real chose to negotiate extensions with Luka Modric, Lucas Vasquez and Sergio Ramos ahead of him, according to FootMercato.
PSG are said to have made contact with his agents as a result.
The Ligue 1 giants also got in touch with Real chiefs and were reportedly encouraged after hearing talks had stalled.
But the centre-back wants to move to England instead in a huge boost to Man Utd, according to the Mirror.
Varane has been a star at Real Madrid for a decade and boasts a trophy cabinet containing four Champions League titles, three LaLiga crowns and a World Cup.
And Los Blancos are said to be looking for £50million for him this summer despite him having just 12 months left on his deal.

Sevilla’s Jules Kounde has also been named as on United’s shortlist.
Chelsea are one other club thought to be interested in Varane.
Madrid have already let Ramos go this summer amid a mounting debt problem, but have signed David Alaba to bolster their defence.
