Raphael Varane cautioned against Manchester United move.

Raphael Varane cautioned against Manchester United move.

Former Chelsea and France player Frank Leboeuf has discredited Raphael Varane’s advised move to Manchester United.

Varane has declined Real Madrid’s advances around a deal extension and is said to be looking to leave the Spanish side.

United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s determination to recruit a centre-back partner for Harry Maguire has led to the France international being strongly linked with a move to Old Trafford.

And The Peoples Person lately covered The Independent’s allegations that the center-back has his heart set on a switch to United this summer.

However, Leboeuf is unconvinced that the move would be in Varane’s best affairs.

Speaking to ESPN, the former Chelsea veteran said, “We know the history of Man United but we are talking about the past.”


On United’s current situation in the English game, he added, “They finished in second place in the league but I’m not sure it’s a goal for everyone to go to Manchester United now unless they have three or four new signings coming in…so they can challenge Manchester City and Liverpool next season.”

It’s a seemingly straightforward question that doesn’t really hold up to scrutiny.

The club’s post-Ferguson shortcomings have been much publicized. However, the current group is on a definite upward trajectory, with a young and talented pool of players forming the core of the what could be the next great United side. True success feels tantalizingly approaching.

This summer the club has been (unusually) effective in recognizing a host of top targets, with the capture of the hugely exciting Jadon Sancho beginning to seem like a formality.

From Varane’s prospect, he has the opportunity to play for one of the biggest clubs in the world, in the most-watched league and in front of the biggest crowds.

All this at a time when English football seems to be entering a new age of European dominance.
