Ramos, who himself just landed a transfer to Paris Saint-Germain, wished Varane the best at Manchester United.
He also joked that if the two go head-to-head for their clubs, Varane should let Ramos win as he plays for a French side.
Ramos wrote: “Dear Rapha, I can only thank you for these years of friendship, camaraderie and triumph.
“And I wish you good luck in a new stage which will surely be exciting. If we face each other, always with the team from your country, right? Take care. “
Ramos and Varane have won four Champions League trophies for Real and also enjoyed domestic success in Spain. Their departure leaves huge boots to fill at the Bernabeu.
Brazilian star Marcelo also had kind words for Varane, sending him a message when he moved to Old Trafford.
United announced Varane’s decision earlier this week. The deal is subject to a medical review and an announcement expected to be finalized in the coming days.
Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has previously explained how excited he is about Varane’s arrival, telling the club’s website that the move, along with the signing of Jadon Sancho, will allow United to play in different ways.
