They have put an end to their long pursuit of Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho, providing Solskjaer with an enticing array of offensive alternatives.


The Norwegian is preparing his team for a title push in the Premier League next season, and adding Varane to Old Trafford will undoubtedly help them close the gap on Manchester City.



However, Varane will be joined by another new center-back, as Solskjaer is dissatisfied with his present alternatives in that position.


The Manchester Evening News revealed at the beginning of the month that United was considering adding two central defenders this summer.

They indicated that if Eric Bailly's game time is limited in the future season, he may seek a transfer away from Old Trafford.



It was also reported that teenagers Axel Tuanzebe and Teden Mengi will be loaned out to acquire experience, while Phil Jones will be released.


With only Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof having assured futures at center-back, the Red Devils will want to improve the quality of their choices in that position.


Jules Kounde of Sevilla is allegedly at the top of their list of secondary center-back targets.



According to the Daily Mail, the Red Devils are considering a move for the 22-year-old, who has long been on their radar.


Kounde was a member of France's Euro 2020 team, having established himself as one of Europe's top young defenders.


Despite the fact that he is under contract with Sevilla for three more years, the La Liga club is expecting offers.



With Varane on his way to Old Trafford, Kunde is expected to become the next priority on Solskjaer's shopping list, ahead of the pursuit of Declan Rice.
