Martial praises ‘great player’ Varane after Man Utd arrival

Raphael Varane is a “great player” who will quickly prove his worth at Manchester United, according to his new team-mate Anthony Martial.

The two have linked on several occasions in international service for France and have now joined forces with United after Varane left Real Madrid.

Center-back Varane has ordered a fee estimated at around £ 42.7million (€ 50million) and Martial expects him to come to life at Old Trafford with the ease of a man who has won the World Cup and the Champions League.

“Varane, I already know that, of course,” said Martial, who is also excited about Jadon Sancho’s earlier arrival, on United’s official website. “And the skills he has, I know he will bring a lot to our team, besides his long experience, so we’re all really excited about these two new players that we have.

“Varane is a great player. I don’t think he will need too long to adjust to his new surroundings, but I am here for him for whatever little help or advice he might need.

“He has all his experience. He’s a player who has won a lot during his career at Real Madrid and also in the France team, so I’m sure he will bring all his powers, because he really is a player. top level. and I know things are going to be going well for him here at United. “

After moving to the Santiago Bernabeu in 2011, Varane won three La Liga titles and the Champions League four times.

He has racked up over 350 appearances for Los Blancos and comes to Old Trafford as one of the best defenders in the world.

Indeed, Varane has played 79 times for France, winning the World Cup in 2018 before participating in the four matches of the Blues at Euro 2020.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side opened their Premier League season with an emphatic 5-1 victory over Leeds United.

Varane could make his debut on Sunday’s trip to Southampton.
