Rio Ferdinand sent a Very Clear Message to Raphael Varane

Rio Ferdinand sent a Very Clear Message to Raphael Varane.Rio Ferdinand delivered a very clear message as he embraced Manchester United’s latest signing Raphael Varane on the Old Trafford touchline. “Win, win, win.”

Ahead of the club’s highly-anticipated Premier League opener against Leeds on Saturday afternoon, those behind the scenes at United decided to unveil the £42 million capture from Real Madrid in front of a capacity crowd.

Varane held the famous red shirt aloft as chants of “Ole, Ole, Ole” rang around the stadium. It was a real moment.

After taking a selfie near the centre-circle, the four-time Champions League winner approached former United defender Ferdinand, who was working for BT Sport as a pundit.

The meeting was no coincidence. Growing up, the former Manchester United centre-back was Varane’s idol growing up. In fact, Ferdinand said he sent a text to the Frenchman before he penned a four-year deal at Old Trafford.

And clearly, the respect between the pair is huge. In the below footage, you can hear former England international say: “Good luck, okay. Win, win, win. Speak to you later.”

The 28-year-old is set to bring a huge amount of experience to the fold at Old Trafford after a trophy-laden 10 year spell in Madrid – and former United centre-back Rio Ferdinand is a big admirer of Varane.

In an Instagram Q&A with his followers, Ferdinand responded to a fan who said: “Can you drop Varane a text since you were his idol?”

He replied suggesting he had already sent him a message, saying: “Already have done. Agent Ferdy.”
