Daily Express is reporting that Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain are keeping close tabs on Real Madrid stopper Raphael Varane.
The Frenchman has been in scintillating form this season and he was even preferred to Pepe for the Copa del Rey semi-final clash against Barcelona.
Varane, 19, is showing great maturity for his age, but it looks as though los Blancos could face a real battle to hold on to their prized asset.
Daily Express has learned that Manchester United are eager to lure the talented defender to Old Trafford.
Sir Alex Ferguson has been monitoring the player since he was at Lens and believes he would be a perfect replacement for Rio Ferdinand.
Meanwhile, free-spending Paris Saint-Germain are also showing interest, as they want to pair Varane with Thiago Silva.
Real Madrid chiefs are desperate to keep hold of Varane, but the player might be tempted to leave Santiago Bernabeu if Jose Mourinho quits at the end of the current campaign.
