Manchester United are reportedly 'fearful' that they will miss out on the signing of Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane.

Manchester United are reportedly concerned that they will miss out on the signing of Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane.

The Premier League giants have been heavily linked with an approach for the France international at a time when he has just one year left on his contract.

While personal terms are said to be a formality, the two clubs are yet to agree a fee for the 28-year-old.

According to reports in Spain, United are 'fearful' that Varane may be using their interest to earn a more lucrative contract at the Bernabeu.

The exit of Sergio Ramos has increased the need for Los Blancos to find solutions for their backline as soon as possible, a scenario which could lead to Varane being offered fresh terms.

Real are still likely to cash in on the long-serving centre-back if he opts against penning a new deal.
