Jose Mourinho desperate for reunion with Real Madrid defender

Jose Mourinho has taken his search for new defenders to Spain as he looks to refresh his disappointing defence.

The Portuguese manager is said to have given up on the centre back pairing of Phil Jones and Chris Smalling and he is set to replace them at the next available opportunity.

Reports this morning is linking the Red Devils with a move for Real Madrid star Raphael Varane yet again.

The French man was a target of the Red Devils when Jose Mourinho became their manager last season, however, Real Madrid were unwilling to sell and he settled for Eric Bailey from Villarreal.

However, having made it clear that he wants to win the Premier League next season, he knows he cannot achieve that with the likes of Jones and Smalling playing as his defenders.

Varane is one of the most trusted players of Zinedine Zidane and he is currently seen as an indispensable member of the team, however, the Red Devils will look to tempt them with an incredible offer and see if they would consider it.

Varane was given his Madrid debut by Mourinho, and the Portuguese manager trusted him so much he even played him ahead of his compatriot, Pepe.
