Kylian Mbappe transfer plan emerges after Man Utd agree to sign Raphael Varane

Raphael Varane's imminent move from Real Madrid to Manchester United could have big implications for the future of Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe. The Red Devils announced on Tuesday evening that they have reached an agreement with Los Blancos to sign long-term target Varane, with the centre-back expected to be unveiled next week once he has passed a medical.
It is a departure which has not gone down with Madrid supporters, who are devastated to be losing a defender of the quality of Varane - a player who has been a hugely important figure at the Bernabeu since he arrived from Lens in 2011. However, it is believed that allowing the French international to move on is part of Madrid's plan to eventually bring his international teammate Mbappe to the club.
The La Liga giants are known to be long-term admirers of the 22-year-old, who has formed a reputation as one of the most feared forwards in the world in recent years. Their president Florentino Perez's dream is to make Mbappe a Madrid player in the near future - but in order to do that he knows he has to sell certain members of the squad and get some of the highest earners off the wage bill. Varane was reportedly on around £150,000-a-week at Madrid, and saving that money along with earning a transfer fee of around £40m was seen as smart business by the powers-that-be at the club considering that he could have left for free next year.
