Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has maintained that his compatriot, Raphael Varane, will bring his ‘experience’ to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad.
Man United signed the Frenchman from Real Madrid for a reported £34million but that could rise to £43million if he helped the Reds win the Premier League and Champions League.
Two weekends ago Manchester United announced him as their third summer signing after Tom Heaton and Jadon Sancho. He would miss United’s training match against Burnley last week Tuesday despite resuming training a day prior to the practice game.
The 28-year-old was part of the United squad that played a 1-1 draw against Southampton last weekend. As such, the World Cup winner is in contention to make his debut against Wolves this weekend in the Premier League.
Speaking of Raphael Varane’s experience, the centre-back spent the majority of his playing career at Real Madrid. He shared the same pitch as Cristiano Ronaldo, Sergio Ramos, Karim Benzema and Luka Modric. He also battled against Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez during their time at Barcelona.
In his national team, he has played alongside Pogba, N’Golo Kante, Kylian Mbappe, and Griezmann, just to mention a few.
Pogba believes Varane’s vast experience will help United go forward and also claimes that the former Real centre-half doesn’t need his assistance to settle well at Old Trafford.
What Paul Pogba said of Raphael Varane: “I think he [Varane] doesn’t need me to settle in. He just settles in by himself. He is someone very mature, a very good guy.
Raphael Varane in training ahead of Manchester United’s trip to Wolves “You can see he is very good with everyone already. He is really good in the changing room, which is very important in football.
“His experience. [It’s] his experience, you know. For a young age, he’s seen it all. He has a lot of experience to give to the team [Man United].
“I think everyone can learn from him [Varane]. He’s been with the best and played with the best. He saw all the top players and can give his advice, his personality and his experience to the team, like I said.”
He is an immense fan of the club since 2005. Miracle wonders where Man United would have ranked in the Premier League history if Sir Alex Ferguson wasn’t given enough time to rebuild the team.
