But before the £43m signing can be officially announced, the Frenchman has to undergo a medical after which fans can see pictures of the defender in United colours.
However, that medical depends on the availability of Varane at Manchester, who had been on a break in northern France in recent weeks after his country's exit from the European Championship,
Once Varane arrives in England, he will have to spend five days in quarantine upon his arrival.
And if he tests negative for Covid-19, then he will be able to come out of isolation.
From the look of things, that medical would likely take place at the beginning of next week before a formal announcement confirming his arrival.
