Watch: Raphael Varane showcases his clever skills ahead of Man Utd move


Raphael Varane looks set to complete his move to Manchester United in the next few days and is now stepping up his preparations ahead of the new season. 

United agreed a £34million deal with Real Madrid but Varane’s arrival into the United Kingdom was delayed due to issues regarding his visa.

The issues were eventually resolved and the centre-back is now isolating in Manchester, meaning that he missed United’s final pre-season friendly against Everton on Saturday.

“[It’s] Paperwork now, you know, with Brexit and all that,” Ole Gunnar Solskjaer recently told United’s official website. “I was going to say malarkey but I don’t want to go into politics!

“It’s cost us a few days, with the visa, but he’s been looking after himself. Of course, we’ve got his medical first and hopefully that’s going to be done soon.”

The France international isn’t putting his feet up and recently shared a video of him practising a range of tricks with the ball.
