Man Utd to offer outcast duo, as clear pathway to Varane deal emerges.

Man Utd to offer outcast duo, as clear pathway to Varane deal emerges.

Man Utd could study to bridge the gap after seeing their first proposal for Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane fall short by offering a pair of major names as makeweights, per a report.

News broke on Thursday of Man Utd targeting a blockbuster defensive acquisition to finally provide Harry Maguire with a world class partner.

Real Madrid ace Varane was the man in inquiry, and new manager Carlo Ancelotti is reportedly yielded to the fate of losing the superb Frenchman.

Per the Daily Express, Man Utd wasted little time after expressing their interest by launching a £50m bid.

Varane has just 12 months remaining on his current deal, meaning Madrid may be cajoled into selling on the cheap to prevent a free agent exit next summer.

Nevertheless, given Varane’s position within the game, that bid was reportedly rejected. Instead, Los Blancos are said to be holding out for £80m.


Man Utd are aiming to bring various high profile names to Old Trafford this summer, not least Jadon Sancho. Despite their obvious spending power, they may need to wheel and deal to guarantee each target remains viable.

One way could be to offer Real Madrid a player in a cash-plus-player deal to bridge the gap, and a second Express report highlights two men who could be up for grabs.

Anthony Martial was recently linked with a shock switch to the Bernabeu. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s concerns over the French forward were detailed. Accordingly, Martial was linked with a loan move that could eventually turn permanent.

Martial is competent of playing anywhere across the frontline. Additionally, the newspaper believes he could be the perfect backup to the aging Karim Benzema.

The second player mentioned as a potential makeweight is Donny Van de Beek.

The Dutch midfielder suffered a torrid debut season in Manchester, racking up just 511 minutes of league action.

A sudden exit has often been touted. And Van de Beek’s previous comments about how close he came to signing for Real Madrid symbolize the club are clearly big fans of the 24-year-old.

He told De Telegraaf (via the Express): “Everything was closed with Real Madrid and the clubs also had an agreement, but for some reason it did not materialise.

“Players who were going to leave the team stayed and Madrid backed down.”
