Forget Smalling And Blind – These 3 Defenders Will Be A Rock For Manchester United If They Are Signed

Raphael Varane

The Frenchman has been linked with Manchester United for quite some time now. He is still not a regular starter in the Real Madrid side and many coaches still prefer to start Pepe over him. He is a player who has been claimed by many as the next defensive beast to overtake World football. Many people believe him to better the performances of Madrid legend Fernando Hierro. He is a centre back who is fast as well as strong at the same time.

Varane is known for providing accurate passes to his team-mates. This season itself he has an average pass accuracy of 88% and has an average duels percentage of 51%. He has won 20 tackles, made 34 interceptions and also has 97 clearances to his name. He is just 22 and can go on and become the next defensive star of the Premier League. Also with the new look United side which boasts of youngsters, Varane would perfectly fit into Louis Van Gaal’s philosophy. He can be a good replacement for Daley Blind and become a good ball playing centre back.
