Raphael Varane update

For some time now Manchester United have found themselves linked with a move for Raphael Varane.

Trippier wants United move

Like Varane, Kieran Trippier has seen himself linked with Man United for a while now.

It was even suggested in early June that the full-back was house hunting in England.
