Manchester United have completed the signing of centre-back Raphael Varane from Real Madrid on a four-year deal.
He was reportedly signed for £34m – which could rise to £42m with add-ons.
“Manchester United is one of the most iconic clubs in world football,” said World Cup winner Varane.
“The chance to come here and play in the Premier League is something I couldn’t turn down.
“There is a lot more that I want to achieve in my career and I know I’m joining a squad full of great players who will all have the same determination to win matches and trophies.
“Having spoken to the manager, I can see how much progress has been made over the last few seasons and I now join a group ready to play at the highest level.
“I want to make an impact here and I will give everything to become part of this club’s illustrious history.”
