Raphael Varane Manchester United

Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane has been linked with a move to Manchester United

That is the honest verdict of ESPN FC pundit and former Chelsea midfielder Craig Burley.

Varane has been linked with a move to Manchester United in the last few days.

But Burley cannot understand why the Frenchman would want to leave Real Madrid to link up with Jose Mourinho at United.

“Forget it,” the Scot said.

“Why would you leave Real Madrid to go to Man United? Have you seen them play? 

Honestly, why would you go to that team at the moment from Real Madrid? Not happening

“Honestly, why would you go to that team at the moment from Real Madrid? Not happening.”

Burley also cannot see United signing Leicester and England centre-back Harry Maguire.

“Harry Maguire, they’re talking about him, I saw some headlines,” he added.

“It’s the usual scenario, I don’t think that’s happening.”

Burley can see one of Phil Jones or Chris Smalling United leaving in the summer though and joked it should be the latter after his dive against Newcastle on Sunday.

“He should leave alone for that dive at the weekend,” Burley said.

“We know him and Jones are not his (Jose Mourinho’s) favourites but we also know that (Eric) Bailly’s been injured and we know (Victor) Lindelof has been pretty poor. 

“So, is he going to sell the two of them? Probably not. One of them might go, it’s a guessing game.”
