“IT WAS HARD TO REJECT MOURINHO’S CALL TO UNITED” -RAPHAEL VARANE
Real Madrid star Raphael Varane has revealed that it was “not easy” to turn down a move to Manchester United in the summer transfer window.
Varane is one of the most highly-rated young defenders in world football and rumours have been circulated constantly over the past couple of years linking him with a big-money move away from Real Madrid due to competition in the form of Pepe and Sergio Ramos.
Man United spent an incredible amount of money in the transfer market this summer and Jose Mourinho did extremely well, but it seems he missed out on one big target that slipped under the radar.
Raphael Varane – who has made 93 La Liga appearances for Real Madrid – has revealed that he had to turn down an offer from Jose Mourinho and Man Utd, which was “not easy”, but the faith shown in him from Zinedine Zidane was too great to turn on.
