Manchester United to buy Penarol right back Guillermo Varela for €1.8m + €1m in variables
Uruguayan journalist Mark Lacaze, known for being an expert in all things Penarol, has reported that Manchester United are on the verge of signing right back Guillermo Varela for €1.8m + €1m in variables.
Varela, a 20-year-old full back, had a trial at Old Trafford last month, and by all accounts defender made a good impression during his stay in Manchester.
Mark Lacaze has now reported that Verala has flown to England in order to sign a deal with Manchester United along with Penarol’s club representative Rodolfo Catino.
Despite having yet to break into the Penarol first team, Varela is a youngster with a big reputation for being an offensive full back who can also defend.
Varela has gained his reputation during a series of matches for Uruguay’s youth sides, and the upstart will represent the Celeste later this month at FIFA’s Under-20 World Cup in Turkey.
A 30-minute video of Guillermo Varela in action can be seen below.
