Manchester United's new signing, pending medicals, Raphael Varane has posted a wonderful farewell message to Real Madrid and their fans ahead of his move to Old Trafford.

United announced on Tuesday that the club had reached an agreement with Real Madrid for the World Cup winner subject to medicals and personal terms.

Red Devils all across the globe reacted in disbelief at their club pulling off such an incredible deal against all odds.

Varane brought an end to 10 glorious, trophy filled years at Real Madrid, winning four Champions League and three La Liga titles.

And now, that his transfer to United is almost done and dusted, Varane has gone ahead and posted a classy farewell message to his former club and fans.

“These past days have been filled with many emotions, feelings that I now want to share with all of you,” he wrote on Instagram. “After 10 amazing and wonderful years at Real Madrid, a club I will always carry in my heart, the day has come to say goodbye. 

“Since I came in 2011, we've together exceeded all expectations and achieved things I never dreamed of. I would like to thank all the coaches and all the people who work or have worked at the club for everything they have done for me. 

“Thank you very much also to all the Madridistas who always gave me a lot of love and with their great demands they pushed me to give the best and fight for every success. 

“I had the honour of sharing the locker room with the best players in the world. Countless victories I'll never forget, especially 'La Decima'. I realise it's been a great privilege to have been able to live those special moments. 

“Finally, I want to thank all Spaniards and especially the city of Madrid where my two children were born. This country will always be special to me. It's been an amazing journey in every way. I leave with the feeling of giving it all and I won't change a single thing in this story of ours. 

“Starting a new chapter…”

With Varane now added in United's back-line, the Red Devils will move their focus to the central-midfield as they aim to build a title winning squad for the 2021-22 Premier League season.
