His medical will take place after his quarantine period and upon completion will sign his contract until June 2025 with a further year option.
The defender will cost United £41m plus add ons despite the rumours the fee was around the £34m mark.
Manchester United released a statement at 7pm tonight announcing the news.
“Manchester United is delighted to announce the club has reached agreement with Real Madrid for the transfer of French international defender and World Cup winner, Raphael Varane, subject to a medical and to player terms being finalised.”
Raphael Varane has won four Champions League trophies and 3 La Liga titles with Real Madrid and the 2018 World Cup with France.
This comes after Jadon Sancho officially signed for Man United last Friday for £73m.
