The Red Devils have already signed Tom Heaton, with Jadon Sancho’s arrival set to be announced imminently, leaving Solskjaer to turn his focus to other transfer targets
Manchester United are currently engaged in a transfer standoff with AC Milan, which hints that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is hopeful of completing a double swoop.
The Red Devils are reforming their squad ahead of an expected title challenge in the upcoming season, with Tom Heaton already joining the club.
Their main target has been Jadon Sancho, with a deal for the winger expected to be announced soon, with a fee already having been agreed with Borussia Dortmund.
That agreement with Dortmund means that United can now turn to Solskjaer’s other targets, with a new centre-back, right-back and defensive midfielder all on the shopping list.
The man that Solskjaer wants to become his new central defender is Real Madrid star Raphael Varane.
Varane looks set to depart the Bernabeu this summer with his contract entering its final year.
United are the clear frontrunners to sign him, with personal terms already reportedly agreed, leaving just the matter of his price tag.
