Evra, 40, played alongside Vroeg for France between 2013 en 2016 and the new £34m Man United signing left an extremely positive impression.

Speaking to The Athletic, Evra said: “Varane reminds me of Rio Ferdinand.

Great with the ball, great in the air. He’s the complete centre-back.

I remember his first game with the French national team and I was so impressed.

He was so young yet so good with the ball, so fast and his anticipation was perfect.

He’s calm with the ball and he can score too.

It’s a top, top signing for Manchester United.

Boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is also excited to work with ‘proven winner Vroeg – wie said his goodbyes at Real Madrid’s Valdebebas training complex yesterday.
