Raphael Varane emotionally says goodbye to Real Madrid ahead of Man Utd move

Raphael Varane is poised to complete a £40m move to Manchester United once he has passed a medical in Manchester after isolating for 10 days, due to Covid protocols.

The French international took to social media to post an emotional goodbye to Spanish giants Real Madrid and effectively confirm his impending move to Old Trafford.

Varane will join Jadon Sancho at Old Trafford after the England international made the £73m switch from Borussia Dortmund earlier this month.

And the World Cup winner spoke of a 'new chapter beginning' with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men that he hopes will see him continue to land silverware.

Varane, 28, made over 300 appearances for Real in 10 glittering years and helped them win 18 major trophies, including three La Liga titles and four Champions League crowns.

Varane wrote on Instagram: "These last few days have been charged with many emotions, feelings that I now want to share with all of you.

"After 10 incredible and wonderful years at Real Madrid, a club that I will always carry in my heart, the day has come to say goodbye.
