Sol Campbell believes Real Madrid star Raphael Varane would be a great signing for Manchester United.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is expected to be handed a massive transfer budget in the summer to add a world class defender and striker to the attack, and the United have been linked with a move for Varane.
Varane has been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League this summer with reports that Real Madrid are willing to cash in to help raise some funds to nail down their top transfer targets
The defender is part of the France squad at the Euros but that has not stopped speculation that Madrid are looking to cash in on the Frenchman and get around £60 million in order to sign players they need.
Now, amid the speculation, Campbell has opened up and claimed that Varane would be a great signing for United this transfer window, he Tweeted: “France haven’t broken sweat yet.
“Varane, there’s shouts of him going to Man United, he’d be a really good buy.”
Quizzed on the speculation he is generating after linking up with the France squad for Euro 2020 duty, Varane recently told reporters: “This is not the time to talk about my future, I am focused on the selection, on this Euro, it is normal and logical to ask the question and for my part it is normal and logical to focus on the upcoming deadlines.
“We are all human beings. We can think about it. As for my personal case, I am focused on the objectives that we have in the France team, it is not a subject that I will discuss every day in my room at Clairefontaine.
“I am focused on my goal, and now is not the time to discuss it. If I have to talk about it, it will be directly with the people concerned.”
