Man United defender, Harry Maguire has assured Raphael Varane that he will do everything possible to help him settle into life at Old Trafford.
The center-back joined United on a four-year deal until June 2025 for a fee believed to be around £41m including add-ons.
Varane’s arrival was announced as the 28-year-old walked out in front of a packed Old Trafford crowd ahead of United’s Premier League opener against Leeds on Saturday.
Varane will partner up with Maguire in the centre of defence, and the Englishman wants him to feel settled as soon as possible.
“As players, the more the merrier and the bigger the competition the better. We know when you play for Manchester United that you can’t sit still. If you sit still then you’ll get caught out and people will overtake you, so you’ve got to keep improving and push yourself every day,” Maguire told MUTV.
“So, bringing players in will make you do that and of course making them feel welcome and settled is something we’ll all do.
“I’ll have a part to play in that and of course there will also be numerous amounts of players and staff who will do that too. I can only speak from my point of view when I joined this club and the way I got welcomed into the team – the players and staff were brilliant.”
