Amidst reports of Paul Pogba joining Real Madrid, Raphael Varane has now opened up on what he thinks of the possible move. The Real Madrid star was in praise for the Manchester United player in an interaction with Goal.com.
Varane was being quizzed about his compatriot after Real Madrid had lost 1-0 to Tottenham in a pre-season friendly match. Varane stated that Pogba would indeed a wonderful addition to the team but he would back his teammates even if Pogba is not able to join them.
“I think we have a team. Pogba is a good player, I know him very well. For any team he would be fantastic,” he was quoted as saying by Goal.com
“I trust my team-mates. If new players come, we’ll see. I trust my team-mates.”
Although Madrid are having a terrible run in the pre-season matches, with them losing three matches as opposed to winning just one, Varane insisted that Real Madrid would be a different team altogether when the season starts.
“I understand that you always want to improve. We are working on that and I trust in our work,” he said.
“It is true that on an individual level we are making mistakes. They’re not tactical, they’re technical errors. This will be corrected. I think we’re going to improve little by little. We are focused on our work.
“I understand that there are many expectations. I also want to see Madrid win, we all want more, it’s good and normal.
“I remember that in 2017, when we won everything, we started the pre-season badly, with defeats.
“We all know that when the competition starts, Madrid is something else. This is not an excuse. We are focused on friendly matches.
“You have to be calm, this season didn’t start. When it starts, we’ll be ready,” he added.
With the transfer window fast approaching its end, clubs have now fast-tracked their process of drafting in new signings. Real Madrid, who at one point looked all set to get in Pogba, seem to be lagging behind as they are in a race against time to get Pogba in Real Madrid colours.
