Deschamps admitted he is impressed at Varane's "maturity" and that he is technically good on the ball, two traits in particular which have struck him.
"At just 19, Varane shows a maturity well beyond his years," AS quotes Deschamps as saying. "He also shows a great technical ease.
"He must maintain his level of performance for a long period [if he is to play for France]. The level he has set is very high."
Varane has made 19 appearances for Real this season.
