Raphael Varane sends Man United welcome message to Casemiro

The Frenchman has expressed his excitement to reunite with a former teammate and ‘warrior’


Manchester United star Raphael Varane has taken to social media late on Friday evening, to send a personal message to the incoming Casemiro.

The news which those of a Red Devils persuasion were patiently awaiting was of course finally forthcoming a short time ago.

This came in the form of an official announcement, confirming an agreement with Spanish giants Real Madrid over the signing of midfield enforcer Casemiro:

‘Manchester United is delighted to announce that the club has reached agreement with Real Madrid for the transfer of Casemiro.

‘The transfer is subject to the agreement of personal terms, UK visa requirements and a medical.’

Casemiro, of course, will come as just the latest ex-Real Madrid star to take his talents to Old Trafford over the course of the last 12 months.

This comes after Raphael Varane did likewise in the summer of 2021, before Cristiano Ronaldo swiftly followed suit.

And now, as alluded to above, the former of this pair has sent a public welcome message to the latest Blanco primed to call the Theatre of Dreams home.

Taking to his official Instagram account a short time ago, stopper Varane responded to news of Casemiro’s imminent arrival at the club, courtesy of the following post:

‘Many battles fought together with my warrior Case ! Welcome to Manchester, amigo.’
