Raphael Varane to decide on Man Utd deal 'in 48 hours'

Raphael Varane will decide whether to move to Man Utd or Real Madrid in the next 48 hours.

Raphael Varane will reportedly make a decision on whether to move to Man Utd in the next 48 hours.

Alex Ferguson has lodged an £9 million offer for the 18-year-old defender, whose club Lens were relegated from Ligue 1 last season.

Other bidders for Varane include Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain.

"Given the clubs involved, it would be very hard to stop him [from moving]," Lens president Gervais Martel told La Voix du Nord today. "I hope this will be finalised in the next 48 hours. I have just spent four hours on the phone, and there are many things to settle."
