 The Norwegian strategist promptly signed a successful contract before leaving Manchester United.

 Varane is the successful signing of Solskjaer. 

However, in the end, Man Utd became a mess, forcing coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to receive a dismissal despite extending his contract in the summer. Under coach Ralf Rangnick, after a difficult start, things have begun to improve. And one of the most important factors to help Man Utd gradually get back on the right track, can be affirmed as Raphael Varane.

Returning from injury in the draw against Newcastle United, although he could not help the Reds win or keep a clean sheet, but Varane is still the best player on the field with a class performance, completely superior. compared to his partner Harry Maguire. And in the next 5 full 90 minutes in all competitions, Varane helped the Red Devils keep 2 clean sheets.

 Varane always shows the peak in his tackles.

Statistics from the Manchester Evening News show that, of the 12 Premier League matches that the French midfielder has participated in this season, Man United only received 2 defeats. Worth mentioning. Those were all close defeats with a score of 0-1 against Aston Villa and Wolves. In contrast, in the 8 matches Varane was absent from, the Emirates Stadium team lost 4 times. Need to know, they conceded to… 15 goals in these 4 defeats.

Of course, Varane has not exploded too strongly, but compared to the rest of the central defenders, the former Real Madrid star still shows himself on another level. The frequency of Varane’s mistakes only stops at a rare level, instead, he always has impressive performances and more especially is stable – an element that other central defenders of the Red Devils are still lacking.

Most of all, Varane knows how to elevate his partner, as evidenced by Victor Lindelof always performing well whenever he is paired with Varane. Recently, with the support of the French star, Harry Maguire also had an excellent performance to help the Red Devils keep a clean sheet against West Ham.

In a season full of instability, it can be said that Varane’s presence has helped Man Utd a lot. And obviously, the £34 million contract of coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has worked as expected.
