Manchester United need to pull out all the stops to replace Raphael Varane with Leny Yoro – Man United News And Transfer News

On Tuesday, Raphael Varane took to social media to bid farewell to Manchester United fans, confirming he will depart Old Trafford at the end of the season upon the expiration of his contract.

The Frenchman moved to Manchester from Madrid in the summer of 2021, having bagged several trophies, including four Champions Leagues, with Real Madrid.

It is fair to say that at United, he did not enjoy the same level of success. 

Having joined the Red Devils at the age of 28, Varane frequently struggled with injuries and seldom managed to show the “Rolls Royce” defending that was a regular feature in the Spanish capital.

As far as the France international is concerned, United’s biggest regret is not that the ageing Varane failed to turn around their fortunes, rather it is their failure to rope in the young Varane, who first caught their attention while playing for RC Lens.

INEOS’ arrival has promised plenty, including a change in the club’s transfer approach.

In that regard, there is no better way to underline the new vision by signing another French prodigy before he is grabbed by a European powerhouse.

Lille centre-back Leny Yoro has emerged as one of Ligue 1’s most exciting prospects, leading to interest from a host of suitors across Europe.

The 18-year-old has earned plenty of plaudits for his composure in possession as well as exceptional reading of the game.

As always, Real Madrid appeared first in the queue for another top talent, with many reports earlier this year suggesting Los Blancos are favourites to secure Yoro’s signature.

However, as per Cadena SER (via Diario AS), Real are unlikely to pay €60m, Lille’s reported asking price, for the promising central defender. As things stand, he is not expected to move to Santiago Bernabeu.

United’s financial situation is not great due to financial fair play regulations, but if there is any chance of bringing a talent like Yoro to the Theatre of Dreams, INEOS should do everything in their power to make it happen.

Replacing Varane with a player who is showing a similar potential to the RC Lens prodigy that impressed Sir Alex Ferguson in the 2010s would be incredible.
