Marcus Rashford labels Manchester United transfer target as one of his toughest opponents.

Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford has described Real Madrid and France player Raphael Varane as one of the toughest players he has gone up against.

United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is Ardent on strengthening his defensive line with a center-back this summer, and the club are reportedly sweating on a move for Varane.

The 28-year-old, who won the World Cup with Les Bleus in 2018, has just a year left on his deal at the Bernabeu and could be beneficial for around £40million in the forthcoming transfer window.

Varane will be expecting to help fire Didier Deschamps’ side to glory at Euro 2020 this summer, with Les Bleus going into the dallied tournament as one of the favorites to win the competition.

England international Rashford could go up against Varane, who he mentioned in a recent Q&A as one of the most complex defenders he has faced along with fellow Madrid center-back Sergio Ramos and Liverpool’s Virgil van Dijk.

“That is a tough question,” Rashford said when asked to pick out the toughest defender he has encountered at Premier League or international level.


“I think an individual is different to a unit. Some teams defend really well as units and it’s teams like Burnley, for example, who do everything as a four. So if one pushes up, they all push up. If one drops, they all drop. It can be, at times, difficult to find space.

“But then there are some top individual defenders – van Dijk, Ramos.

“I thought, when we played against Real Madrid in a friendly, that Varane played and he was quite tough. So there are a few people.”

After completing second in the Premier League, 12 points behind champions Manchester City, Solskjaer has maintained that his squad needs strengthening this summer.

“We were the second-best team, but too far behind to threaten the champions,” Solskjaer told TV2 last week. ‘We have to strengthen ourselves.

“Of course, something will happen in the transfer window.

“The world has become very different than it was 15 or 16 months ago, but we have to make some moves in the transfer window and also with the team.”
