The four-time Champions League winner has signed a four-year deal keeping him at the club until June 2025.

His arrival means he joins the top ten most expensive arrivals in the club’s history.

Paul Pogba remains the costliest of all, while Varane’s fellow summer arrival Jadon Sancho was the fourth most expensive at £73m.

Varane has hailed Man Utd as “one of the most iconic clubs in world football”, and the chance to join was something he “couldn’t turn down”.

On the £42m move, Varane told United’s official club website: “Manchester United is one of the most iconic clubs in world football and the chance to come here and play in the Premier League is something I couldn’t turn down.

“There is a lot more that I want to achieve in my career and I know I’m joining a squad full of great players who will all have the same determination to win matches and trophies.

“Having spoken to the manager I can see how much progress has been made over the last few seasons and I now join a group ready to play at the highest level. 

“I want to make an impact here and I will give everything to become part of this club’s illustrious history.”

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is over the moon with the addition of the serial winner.

Solskjaer said: “I’m absolutely delighted that we have managed to secure one of the best defenders in the world over the last 10 years.

“Raphael is a proven winner who we have tracked over a long period of time and we know just how much of a dedicated professional he is.

“We have great depth of international defenders and he will add his immense skill set and leadership to that group.
