Defensive reinforcement is all that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and the Manchester United hierarchy are in dire need over the summer transfer window.
Top talented defenders have been linked to Old Trafford, but Ole has his own choice of player he wants to be the perfect pair for Harry Maguire.
28 years old Real Madrid's Raphael Varane emerged as the top target for the Red Devils who will be available this summer.
The Frenchman made it clear that he wants a summer move away for a new challenge as he is coming closer to the end of his contract.
According to reliable Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo, Real Madrid have sliced their asking price for the top defender.
Reports had it before that Real Madrid will be asking for £60 million to part ways with Raphael Varane.
However, the Los Blancos are ready to accept a deal worth £43 million to allow the player leave their club as they are not prepared to lose him on a free transfer.
After this news, Manchester United are working on finalizing the deal quicker than they expected.
If Manchester United manage to complete the signing of Raphael Varane, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be a step closer to be trophy challengers.
