3 Ways Man United Would Line Up With Raphael Varane After Completing Transfer

Manchester United have officially reached an agreement with Real Madrid over the transfer of Raphael Varane to Old Trafford.

Option 2: At The Center Of a Back 3

Raphael Varane’s ball-playing skills could allow the Norwegian to change things up and switch to a back three for good. Luke Shaw and Aaron Wan-Bissaka would be used as wing-backs, giving the Red Devils more fluidity in attack.

Option 3: Playing With 1 Defensive Midfielder

Ole is often criticized for using two defensive midfielders but the Madrid center-back could be the one to change that. With someone of the Frenchman’s skill at the back, Paul Pogba would be played in a more advanced position.
