The French Raphael Varane, a new Manchester United player, said he wanted “new emotions” that prompted him to decide to leave Real Madrid and discover a new league like the English one, in “an incredible opportunity” and in a club in which he admired Ryan Giggs, David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo.
«I am very happy and excited to start a new journey. It was a very good adventure with my old club, but now it is a new beginning for me. I came because I wanted new emotions and the presentation was as expected, and even bigger, “he said in an interview with the Manchester United media.
“There had been a lot of rumors and a lot of people talking about me and Manchester United since 2011, with Sir Alex Ferguson. When it has been real is when I spoke with Real Madrid because I felt that it was a great opportunity to play in the Premier League, “he added.
Varane defends himself in English, has moved to Manchester with his whole family and is starring in a quick adaptation, eager to play his first minutes with his new team. “It is a new challenge and I have great motivation to start in a new league with a great club like Manchester United.”
“It is an incredible opportunity and that is why I chose this change. You feel when things come at a good time and it was the right time. It was very important for me to know exactly the philosophy of the club and its challenges and objectives. I’m going to work very hard to win trophies, “he said.
The French central champion of the world defined himself as “hard-working, respectful and ambitious”, and spoke about his reunion at a club with his teammate Paul Pogba, which has helped him to integrate quickly.
“Paul is very positive and has very good energy, he motivates the players in the dressing room and on the field. We are different but very complementary and it is important to have different types of leaders in the team. We have known each other for a long time, we started together in the national team and he is a great player. We are both ambitious and ready to do everything possible to win trophies, “he said.
