Varane has been linked with a move to the Red Devils in recent weeks, and Marca reports that United representatives have asked the La Liga giants about the France international’s availability.
According to the Spanish newspaper, Real Madrid have told the Premier League giants that the 22-year-old is not for sale under any circumstances.
However, it is understood Varane is not happy with his status as backup centre-back at the Bernabeu and could be interested in a move to England.
United manager Louis van Gaal is looking to bolster his defence ahead of the new season and there’s no doubt that the supremely talented Varane fits the bill.
Van Gaal struggled to settle on a defensive combination last season, but Varane would surely be considered a key cog in the United lineup should he sign with the 13-times Premier League winners.
