The 28-year-old is United’s third signing of the summer after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer also brought in Jadon Sancho and Tom Heaton.

Varane was in the final year of his contract at Madrid and the club opted to sell him this summer rather than lose him on a free transfer later down the line.

Over the decade he spent at the Bernabeu he made 360 appearances where he won three La Liga titles and four Champions League trophies.

Sources told ESPN that despite this success, he was looking for a new challenge in the Premier League.

The centre-back was also part of the 2018 World Cup winning France squad.
