The one Man United fans have been waiting for: Varane celebrates Sancho link-up with training ground photo
Raphael Varane has taken to social media on Monday, to post a photo which will no doubt go down a treat with the Manchester United faithful.
Latest Reds addition
On the back of weeks of painful delays and speculation, French stopper Varane was of course finally unveiled as a United player this past weekend.
Ahead of the club’s Premier League opener versus Leeds United, the 28-year-old made his way onto the Old Trafford pitch, in possession of his new n0.19 jersey.
Varane’s presence was met with understandably rapturous applause across the Theatre of Dreams, with the ex-Real Madrid man set to introduce some long overdue experience at the very top of the game to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s backline:

The arrival of their newest addition, though, proved only the start in an all-round wonderful afternoon for United on Saturday.
The Reds, in turn, went on to run riot versus Leeds, as a Bruno Fernandes hat-trick, amidst further strikes on the part of Mason Greenwood and Fred, ultimately culminated in a 5-1 final scoreline.
‘Back to work’
And, as outlined above, on Monday, the positive vibes have only continued to mount on the red half of Manchester.
This afternoon saw the aforementioned Varane link up with his new teammates at United’s Carrington training base for the very first time.
And Varane himself was evidently in good spirits, with the Frenchman having been full of smiles across a host of photos and videos posted to the club’s social media platforms:

It is in fact an image unveiled on his own Instagram account, however, which has since sent tongues wagging throughout the Red Devils’ fanbase.
The photo in question sees Varane in discussion with fellow big-money summer arrival Jadon Sancho, accompanied by the caption:
