Paul Merson has praised Manchester United for securing the signature of Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane.

The Sky Sports pundit believes the Manchester club’s latest addition could well be the best signing any Premier League team has made during the current transfer window:

“Raphael Varane will turn Manchester United into title contenders -he’s the signing of the summer in the Premier League. I think it’s as tight as it’s ever been this season and there’s four teams who could win the league. United weren’t one of them but Varane changes that. I think that’s a major signing. With all the class and experience he brings with him from Real Madrid, I think he’s going to have a massive impact.”

Merson could have gone for Chelsea’s capture of Romelu Lukaku, Manchester City’s move for Jack Grealish or even Varane’s new teammate, Jadon Sancho, but it seems he feels the centre-back will be worth his weight in gold.

Having won the World Cup with France, as well as a staggering four Champions League trophies with Real Madrid, it is difficult to argue with Merson on this one.

When you also consider the fact that Varane will only cost an initial £34m, it could also prove to be the bargain of the summer if the 28-year-old does go on to help United win the Premier League title this campaign.
