Spanish newspaper AS claims that Manchester United are readying bid for Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane.
The Red Devils have faced another defensive crisis when Nemanja Vidic was sidelined for two months with a knee injury and they are desperate to add another centre-back to their ranks.
According to AS, Sir Alex Ferguson has set his sights on Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane.
The Frenchman arrived to Santiago Bernabeu in a €10 million deal from Lens last summer, but has yet to make a real impact with los Blancos.
The 19-year-old has yet to start a La Liga game this season and he could be open to a possibility of joining Manchester United.
The young centre-back recently denied claims that he wanted to leave the club, but he could change his mind if he continues to be overlooked at Santiago Bernabeu.
