Man Utd are closing in on the capture of Raphael Varane after agreeing a £38.5million deal with Real Madrid, according to reports in France.

Le Parisien reported a Manchester United source claiming talks were ‘rapidly approaching’ an agreement for the 28-year-old.

The report said the main points of a deal worth around €45m (£38.5) had been agreed by the two clubs.

United had reportedly already agreed terms with the France international centre-back until 2026.

Meanwhile, Solskjaer said following United’s pre-season friendly defeat to QPR on Saturday that he hopes Paul Pogba will commit his future to the club.

‘The talks are ongoing between Paul’s representatives and our club representatives,’ said Solskjaer.

‘There is always speculation about Paul and there are always clubs being interested because of course we have seen Paul at his best.

‘I’m not in the detail of every single one of the discussions but Paul knows what we feel about it. I have enjoyed my time working with Paul and hopefully we can [continue] working together.

‘All the dialogue I’ve had with Paul is he’s looking forward to the new season.’

Man Utd fans would hope that Solskjaer’s side get to a flyer this season and possibly bring home some silverwares to Old Trafford following these signings.
