O’Hara believes Varane was torn apart by Chelsea when they faced each other in the Champions League last season, which may seem a bit tough given that he only played in the first leg which ended 1-1.

Overall, however, the former Tottenham midfielder seems convinced that Varane will bring quality to United’s defense and represent an improvement over what they currently have as Victor Lindelof and Eric Bailly struggle to impress on a permanent basis.
It will be interesting to see if Chelsea feel they can cause him problems again if he moves to Old Trafford and they face each other in the Premier League next season.
