In a recent share, former Man City player Micah Ricards said that Raphael Varane came to MU partly because of the presence of midfielder Paul Pogba. He told Sky Sports:

Pogba and Varane are teammates in France, they have a close relationship. I am sure that after receiving the offer from MU, Varane consulted with Pogba. It is the advice of Pogba that is one of the reasons why MU has a Real Madrid midfielder.”


“I know PSG, Arsenal and Liverpool also want Varane, but there is not a big enough player, someone with a voice that makes Varane waver like Paul Pogba. Whether Pogba renews his contract or not, MU must thank him, because it was this player who influenced Varane to Old Trafford.”
