And some Man Utd supporters on Reddit have spotted that the third kit’s No19 shirt, which was worn by Amad Diallo last season, has been taken off the club shop website.
This has led many to speculate that Varane is set to wear No19 for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.
One Red Devils fan pointed out: “Varane was #19 in his first season at Real Madrid.”
And Amad Diallo has been linked with a move out on loan this summer, which would free up the No19 jersey for Varane.
United are expected to complete the signing of the French World Cup winner imminently.
Speaking last week before he came out of isolation, Solskjaer gave an update on the situation.
He said: “The med with Raphael has to be done. He is isolating at the moment and had to wait for visas.
“Unfortunately that took a few more days than expected but you have got to follow the protocols and rules, it’s taken a few more days than hoped for.”
