Pavard sends message to Varane after Man United win vs Wolves

1 minute read

Benjamin Pavard was quick to comment on Raphael Varane’s social media post after the Manchester United defender scored the only goal in a 1-0 win over Wolves on Monday night.

Varane was the surprise winner as United kicked off their 2023/24 Premier League campaign with three points and a clean sheet. Erik ten Hag’s side were second best on the night, struggling to contain an electric Wolves outfit who did everything but score.

United showed their clinical edge with a lovely piece of play that led to the winning goal midway through the second half. Bruno Fernandes dinked a beautiful pass through to Aaron Wan-Bissaka whose lofted cross found Varane to head home from close range.

RATINGS:Wan-Bissaka and Onana good in win vs Wolves

United survived a late onslaught and a penalty scare to secure the win, and Varane took to Instagram shortly after full-time to celebrate.

Among those to respond to the defender was former French international teammate Pavard, who posted two fire emojis in the comments. United have been heavily linked with a move for the Bayern Munich man in recent weeks, with Ten Hag planning to strengthen at the back if Harry Maguire leaves.

United have accepted a £30million fee for the England international but the move is yet to be finalised. The club are said to have made contact with a list of options to replace him, Pavard among them.

The 27-year-old is thought to be keen on a move, but United remain short of Bayern’s £35million valuation.
