Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has broken his silence regarding the signing of Real Madrid centre-back Raphael Varane.
The United boss spoke after tonight’s 2-2 friendly draw with Premier League new boys Brentford.
The Red Devils announced on Tuesday that they had agreed a deal to sign Varane.
The transfer is reportedly worth £34million rising to £42million with add-ons.
“Of course, very happy that we’ve managed to get a deal with Real Madrid,” OGS said after the Brentford game.
“Medical should hopefully be OK. He’s a proven winner, a player we’ve followed for many years.”
“First of all the club shows ambition with one of the most exciting young players in world football, then one of the most respected centre-backs.
“We have different ways of playing with Raphael. I can’t wait to get him in, hopefully we can get that sorted as soon as.
“We’ve scrambled before towards the end of the window and now I have to say we’re in a good position.”
United were unable to get the better of Brentford tonight, but Andreas Pereira scored a wonder goal in the friendly.
