Varane will partner club captain Harry Maguire in the defence with Luke Shaw and Wan-Bissaka in the coming season.

The France International will fly to Manchester next week to undergo his medical a few days later.

He will be unveiled later than expected because of enforced quarantine rules as a result of Covid-19.
