Anthony Martial opens up and tells fans new signing will be Manchester United success after summer move
Anthony Martial is confident Raphael Varane will bring success to Manchester United after sealing his move to the club
The France international is widely regarded as one of the finest centre-backs of his generation, having struck up a rock-solid partnership with Sergio Ramos at Madrid which provided the backbone for their recent success on domestic and European fronts.
He becomes United’s second big-money signing of the summer, with Jadon Sancho already completing a £73m ($101m) switch from Borussia Dortmund – and there may be more business to come before an August 31 deadline.
Varane will now be expected to develop a similar relationship with United captain Harry Maguire, with Swedish defender Victor Lindelof likely to drop to the bench to make room for the ex-Blancos star.
And after seeing the deal get announced, The 25-year-old has welcomed the arrival of his fellow Frenchman to Manchester, and has told fans that he will be a success at the club, telling manutd.com: “Varane is a big-time player.
“I don’t think he [Varane] will need too much time to adapt to his new environment, but I’m there for him for whatever little help or advice he may need.
“He has all his experience, – he’s a player who has won a lot during the time of his career at Real Madrid and also in the French national team, so I am sure he will bring all his powers, as he really is a top player and I know things are going to go well for him here at United.”
We have said it before and we will say it again, Varane was just the type of signing that United needed to make and he will make a big difference in their quest to regain that Premier League title
