Jose Mourinho personally negotiating with La Liga giants key player

Real Madrid have reportedly set up an urgent meeting with Raphael Varane to discuss his future after finding out about the approaches from Manchester United.

Don Balon claims, Jose Mourinho has been personally contacting Frenchman with a tempting offer to bring him to England this summer. The 25-year-old would undoubtedly be a great addition to the Red Devils considering their current shortage of genuine world-class centre-backs.

Varane shone under Portuguese manager when he was in charge of Rela Madrid and a reunion could be the next step for him in his career, though Spanish news outlet suggests La Liga giants are desperate to keep hold of him.

The Don Balon adds that the France international has moved to assure the club that he’s yet to decide on his future and will make up his mind after the Champions League final. Reinforcements at the back are surely needed if the club is to stand any chance of catching Manchester City next season.

Despite sitting second in the league at the moment, Mourinho’s side haven’t been at all close to the Citizens for much of the season and it looks like further investment will be needed to close the gap.
