Manchester United transfer round-up: United reportedly make an enquiry over Raphael Varane

Varane Madrid

A round up of news stories this morning related to Manchester United.

The Daily Star has reported that Manchester United have made an enquiry to Real Madrid over defender Raphael Varane.

United are thought to have asked the Spanish club whether they would be prepared to let the Frenchman move on.

The paper states that Real’s response was an emphatic no and that United need to go back to the drawing board.

The Daily Star has also reported that Manchester United are thought to have opened talks with Monaco over a deal for Fabinho.

The 21-year-old is reported to have held a round of initial talks with the Old Trafford club ahead of a possible summer move.

The paper claims that United will have to spend somewhere in the region of £10 million to make a deal happen.

The Daily Express has reported that David De Gea has apparently sent an ultimatum to Real Madrid over a move.

The Spanish shot stopper is being linked with a high profile switch to the Spanish giants by the end of the summer.

However, the paper claims that he’s not prepared to move to the club if Iker Casillas remains on their playing staff.
