Troubling Update Emerges On Raphael Varane’s Man Utd Move

Raphael Varane is yet to fly to England to seal his move to Manchester United as he has been held up by a visa issue.

United have agreed to sign the Frenchman from Real Madrid in a deal worth around £40m, and he had been expected to jet over to Manchester on Monday to finalise the negotiations and put pen to paper on a contract.

However, The Telegraph say that is yet to happen because the centre-back is still waiting to be awarded the visa needed to work in England.

There is no indication of when that visa will arrive, but there's no risk of this move falling apart.

Varane will get his visa eventually, it's just a case of playing the waiting game.

Once Varane does eventually get over to England, he will have to enter into quarantine before being permitted to undergo his medical and sign his contract.

So there is a good chance the deal for Varane could be delayed at least another week.
