Manchester United are closing in on the transfer of Real Madrid superstar Raphael Varane and have even been reported to probably confirm the deal in the coming hours.

The Red Devils have been tracking Varane for more than a couple of weeks as the Frenchman refused an extension with Los Blancos.

It has been known that the Frenchman's ideal destination for next season will be United, but Cuatro believe confirmation of the Frenchman's move to United could be finalised on Monday.

Varane is said to have already agreed personal terms with United last week and the Red Devils are reported to have come to a £43m agreement with Real Madrid for the World Cup winner.

News of this transfer's acceleration started this afternoon with a number of reputed journalists reporting that United might end up signing Varane as soon as tonight.

Fabrizio Romano said it's 'getting closer and closer'. The Athletic's David Ornstein added United are 'increasingly confident' and 'intensifying negotiations'. The Manchester Evening News note that Varane has already made preparations to fly to England.

Fans on social media went absolutely berserk on hearing these updates and they reacted in huge numbers, mostly in shock with the fact that their club has moved this fast in the transfer window.

Here are some United fans, Real Madrid fans and journalists' best reactions:
