Manchester United are reportedly closing in on the signing of Real Madrid centre-back Raphael Varane.
The Red Devils are believed to have already agreed personal terms with the France international, who wants a new challenge this summer following 10 years in the Spanish capital.
The two clubs have been in negotiations over a transfer fee for the World Cup winner, and a recent report claimed that Man United are prepared to pay €50m (£42.8m) to sign the defender this summer.
According to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, the 20-time English champions will submit an offer 'in the next few days', and the club's board are 'confident' of getting the deal done.
The 28-year-old, who represented his country at this summer's European Championship, only has 12 months left to run on his current deal at the Bernabeu.
The centre-back has made 360 appearances for Los Blancos since arriving from Lens in 2011, winning three La Liga titles and four Champions League crowns during his time at the club.
