Agreement in place? And Manchester United targeting 3 players of highest quality – rumours

Varane is a top-level footballer

The transfer speculation has certainly ramped up over the last week and Manchester United are now being linked with some players of the highest quality.

Their summer spend will be absolutely huge if they do manage to snare these three.


The Brazilian wizard hasn’t always been a first choice at Chelsea this season but they will surely look to hold on to him if they can.

But the desires of the player cold come to the fore he and Manchester United may make a move according to ESPN who say:

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is targeting Chelsea midfielder Willian as part of his summer rebuilding plans at Old Trafford, sources have told ESPN FC.

James Rodriguez

A player with all the talent in the world but he hasn’t quite managed to perform consistently at the top level in Spain after a really promising first season at Real Madrid.

The Colombia International, who has 19 goals in 54 games for his country, has been at Real Madrid since 2014 and scored 34 goals in 114 games.

And reports from Spain (via The Express) imply that Jose Mourinho and Manchester United have a verbal agreement in place to sign the inordinately talented but mercurial playmaker.

Raphael Varane

Reports in Spain suggest that Jose Mourinho had held talks with the France international over a summer move to Old Trafford.

The 24-year-old has to be one of the best defenders in Europe and is coming into his prime. As such he will surely be a difficult player to displace from the Real Madrid set up. But what a fantastic complement to the bruising talents of Eric Bailly. Varane has the same sort of grace and elegance in his movement as the Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand.

Manchester United fans: would he be a top addition or a luxury player?
