United are set for a hectic summer with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer considering a number of key signings to strengthen his squad ahead of the new season.
A new partner for Harry Maguire is the priority, and it is understood that United will make every effort for a new center-back in the transfer window.
Villarreal’s Pau Torres are being considered, but the Manchester Evening News understand that United have already opened exploratory talks with Varane’s representatives.
The 28-year-old is in the final year of his contract at Real Madrid and despite a decade rich in trophies in the Spanish capital, he is considering his future.

Real have promised the club captain to Varane with his contract offer, but the center-back is ready to go as he believes there is a disparity between his salary offer and what his highest paid teammates are making.
Florentine Perez would rather sell this summer than risk losing it for nothing and MEN revealed in March that Los Blancos are ready to sell , valued at around £ 60million.
United’s final Europa League loss to Villarreal, in which they again conceded on a set piece, once again showed how much a new center-back is needed this summer.
Fans would love to see Varane arrive at Old Trafford and were unleashed on Sunday when the Frenchman posted a photo on Instagram alongside Pogba.
The United midfielder has now teamed up with the France squad ahead of Euro 2020 and posed for a photo with the defender, along with Barcelona man Antoine Griezmann, and some supporters are hoping he will bring back Varane in Manchester with him.
Varane was asked about his future earlier this week but has kept a low profile.
“This is not the time to talk about my future, I am focused on the selection, on this Euro, it is normal and logical to ask the question and for my part it is normal and logical to focus on the upcoming deadlines, ”Varane mentioned.
“We are all human beings. We can think about it. As for my personal case, I am focused on the objectives that we have in the France team, this is not a subject that I will discuss every day in my room at Clairefontaine.
“I’m focused on my goal, and now is not the time to discuss it. If I have to talk about it, it will be directly with the people concerned.
