The Red Devils have commenced their transfer activity early in the summer transfer window.
After the window opened on Wednesday, Borussia Dortmund rejected a £67m approach for 21-year-old winger Jadon Sancho on Thursday.
United and the Bundesliga giants are said to be £11m apart in their current stances, so it’s a deal many expect to be completed in the coming months finally.
With United potentially expending a club-record fee to secure Sancho, it begs the question of how much would be left to secure Varane’s services.
Solskjaer may have to remove some deadwood from his squad before strengthening further, with the likes of Phil Jones, Andreas Pereira and Jesse Lingard all in the shop window.
