The report claims the Los Blancos president will use Varane, as well as the duo of Toni Kroos and Gareth Bale - who are valued at £54m and €90m (£80m) respectively - to secure the shot-stopper.
Main targets consist of centre defenders and defensive midfielders to ‘free’ Pogba and replace Carrick, which I don’t understand when they have McTominay who has impressed the Old Trafford faithful and Mourinho. Main targets are Umititi, Alderwield, Varane, Jorginho, Fabinho.... pic.twitter.com/UBsqccU1EF— Himmatt (@FootyHimmatt7) March 1, 2018
Real see the upcoming summer as an opportunity to rebuild following their disappointing campaign which could well leave them without silverware, while Mourinho is hoping to strengthen to close the gap on Manchester City.
The Portuguese manager will, however, have to complete his business earlier than usual in the upcoming transfer window, with new regulations coming into play halting any English league side adding to their squad ahead of the opening match of next term.
