‘A big club’
Jose Mourinho wanted to sign Varane in 2016.
And, speaking that year, the Real Madrid defender admitted he found interest from his old boss ‘flattering’.
“Of course it’s flattering,” he said. “Manchester United are a very big club.
“But from the moment when Madrid and I are in sync on my project, there’s no questions to ask yourself.
“I have always said I feel good in Madrid.
“It’s not easy to say ‘No’ to Jose Mourinho, but you have to weigh up the pros and the cons. We’re men, we have decisions to make and that’s how it is.”
