A great day out for those at Old Trafford – to see Raphael Varane in the flesh immediately after he was announced as a Manchester United player, shortly before seeing the Reds crush Leeds 5-1 on the opening day of the Premier League season.
Manchester United finally announced the signing of World Cup-winner Raphael Varane.
Renowned as one of the best defenders in the world, Varane has had to wait for his big announcement but it looks like he will join up with the first-team for training next week.
Fans have every reason to be happy with the result. Leeds came for their annual rollocking and United could’ve scored more than five.
The Paul Pogba chance in the first-half stands out, but the Frenchman went on to assist four goals to mark an excellent performance.
On top of that, Bruno Fernandes scored his first hat-trick for the club.
United fans rejoice at full-time and over Varane signing:

Pogba missed that good chance in the first half and you could hear grumbles. Think he did more than enough to make up for it. Four assists? 😱 The ball for Greenwood though. And honestly, I don’t think there’s a player in the squad I’d rather that chance fell to.

Us for 17 months – that first game back will be something else.

Emotional, absolutely brilliant.
What a great day, game, win; buzzing, can’t stop smiling.
Great to see you all and the famous Manchester United!

For those of you who don’t rate or fancy Scott McTominay in the team I’d just like to let you know that he’ll fight for his place, probably earn it whilst continuing to prove the minority wrong at the same time. He’s a fabulous player who deserves a large amount of credit 🏴
