Manchester United confident to seal the deals for Varane AND Trippier

July 16, 2021

Manchester United are pushing to sign LaLiga defensive pair Raphael Varane and Kieran Trippier.

The Sun says both deals are all but done with announcements expected towards the end of next week.

United look set to hand Real Madrid a £50million fee for Varane, 28, despite the French international centre-back having just one year left on his Bernabeu contract.

England full-back Trippier, 30, wants the move to Old Trafford after two successful years at Atletico Madrid — and a transfer worth £18m is in the final stages.

The two deals will take United’s spending to more than £140m this summer with the arrival of winger Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund for £73m.
