Raphael Varane has said he is ‘very happy’ with his former Real Madrid teammate, Cristiano Ronaldo’s return to Manchester United
Varane hailed the club’s decision to bring Cristiano Ronaldo back to Old Trafford.
The 36-year-old completed his medical at Lisbon on Monday and is now on the verge of official announcement.
Varane and Ronaldo were a key part of the Real Madrid team that won 15 trophies, including two La Liga titles and the Champions League on four occasions.
Asked to give his verdict on the 36-year’old return, Varane told MUTV: “I am very happy.
“He’s a legend and all players can learn when you play with him.
“It’s a great help for all players, for all young players, and of course he never stops scoring goals, so he will help the team.”
Speaking about his debut for United on Sunday, Varane added, “I was very, very happy to be here and to help the team get this victory,’ said the World Cup winner.
“The feeling is absolutely amazing. The Premier League is very intense.
“The game it’s very fast and you know when you play this game, you are very concentrated and it’s very intense. I came here for that feeling.”
