Doubts Raphael Varane will be able to hack it in Premier League as Manchester United set asking price by Real Madrid

Danny Mills questioned whether Raphael Varane is cut out for the Premier League amid Manchester United transfer links.

The Red Devils are believed to be close to signing the 28-year-old World Cup winner from Real Madrid.

Manchester United are reportedly close to landing Varane from Real Madrid for around £50m

Varane only has one year left on his contract, but manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants to bring him to Old Trafford now in a deal said to be worth around £50million.

The defender is said to be happy with the personal terms offered by United and it is now up to the two clubs to reach an agreement.

Madrid had hoped for around £60million, but are said to be willing to accept a lower fee.

Jadon Sancho is also an imminent arrival from Borussia Dortmund as Solskjaer looks to land his first trophy for the club.

Varane featured for France at Euro 2020, but they were knocked out at the last-16 stage

Former Man City, Leeds and Charlton defender Mills believes there are risks attached with bringing Varane in.

He told talkSPORT: “If all those other teams are getting stronger, they are more likely to take points off Manchester United as well.

“Their away record, Manchester United, was superb as well and I don’t think that is going to be the same, especially with fans back in and everything else that is happening.

“Yes he’s a good signing, but was he the right signing? 

Varane has won the Champions League four times with Madrid

“Varane is a good player, but again we don’t know what he is going to be like and how robust he is going to be in the Premier League week in, week out.

“He’s used to playing eight-ish tough games a season, plus the Champions League. 

“Him and [Sergio] Ramos could get through games at Real Madrid with a cigar on. You can’t do that in the Premier League.

“Every single foreign player who comes, [Kai] Havertz and [Timo] Werner said it, ‘we didn’t realise the intensity of every single game’.”
