A report claims that Raphael Varane has agreed personal terms with Manchester United and Real Madrid have now accepted that the defender is on his way out of the club.

Real Madrid are reportedly resigned to losing Raphael Varane to Manchester United after the centre-back agreed personal terms with the Premier League club.

The France international, who has spent the past 10 seasons at the Bernabeu, is due to become a free agent in a little under a year's time.

Varane is supposedly eager to start a new challenge elsewhere, but Madrid can still demand a big fee for the 28-year-old despite his contract situation.

According to the Daily Mail, Los Blancos had been keen to tie Varane down to a new deal, but they have now accepted that his heart is set on a move to Old Trafford.

Former Lens defender Varane is said to have verbally agreed a five-year deal with United that would see him become Harry Maguire's long-term partner at the back.

Should he arrive, Varane would become United's second big-money arrival of the summer, as Jadon Sancho's move from Borussia Dortmund is expected to go through over the next week.
