Manchester United have completed the signing of Raphael Varane from Real Madrid.

The centre-back has joined United on a four-year deal until June 2025 for a fee believed to be around £41m including add-ons.

Varane’s arrival was announced as the 28-year-old walked out in front of a packed Old Trafford crowd ahead of United’s Premier League opener against Leeds on Saturday.

The France international, whose transfer was agreed last month, will wear the No 19 shirt and becomes United’s third summer signing after winger Jadon Sancho and goalkeeper Tom Heaton.
