Raphael Varane admits Man Utd move was his ‘destiny’

Raphael Varane has confessed that he always knew he would end up playing for Manchester United one day after Sir Alex Ferguson tried to recruit him in 2011.

Varane has spoken at length about his in-person conversation with Ferguson but eventually could not pass up the chance to emulate fellow Frenchman Zinedine Zidane at Real Madrid, who parted with a cool £8m to sign him from Lens that same summer.

After a decade in Spain, Varane finally found his way to Manchester in 2021, and the defender admitted to the club’s official website that he always knew it was going to happen eventually.

“Yes [it felt like destiny],” he said. “Manchester United has always been a special club for me, with a big history.

“I always followed this club and, you know, I have great memories about, for example, Champions League or great games in the Premier League. Obviously, it’s a great club and, of course, I always followed Manchester United.”
