Raphael Varane has completed his medical ahead of his move to Manchester United, and will be announced tomorrow morning following the finalization of contract details and signatures. The x4 Champions League winner arrives from Real Madrid just ahead of the 2021/22 season, and brings a championship pedigree to partner Harry Maguire at the heart of the defense.

The Athletic’s Laurie Whitwell reported today that the medical was completed in the evening, as well as the photoshoot of Varane in Manchester United gear, but the official announcement will not come until tomorrow morning at the earliest.

With only Thursday and Friday to join up with the team it is highly unlikely that Varane plays against Leeds, however he will be registered in time to be in the squad. It is speculated that Maguire and Victor Lindelof will be the pair starting again with Varane as a possibility off the bench.
