Manchester United have been offered the opportunity to sign Real Madrid’s Vinicius Jr while in discussions with the club over a move for Raphael Varane.
Having sealed a deal to finally bring Jadon Sancho back to England, United have now shifted their focus to the Frenchman who has entered the final year of his deal at the Bernabeu.
United are growing increasingly confident of landing the France international and have allegedly agreed a five-year deal with the star’s representatives.
A sum is still to be agreed for Raphael but reports in Spain claim negotiations between the Red Devils and Los Blancos have ramped up significantly.
And in a shocking development, there is now hope the English club can also strike a deal to land a 21-year-old Brazil international, according to The Mirror.
Real are asking for £68.5 million for the former Flamengo ace.
United are keen on the forward but not at that price, according to the same report, with a loan deal with an obligation to buy now being studied.
The Spanish giants are planning to offload a host of players to raise funds to sign Paris Saint-Germain superstar Kylian Mbappe, who remains the Galacticos’ top summer target.
An agreement for Varane meantime is said to be ‘imminent’ and the PL giants will pay a total package worth around €50 million (£42.8m).
