Manchester United confirm Guillermo Varela has joined Real Madrid

by Sam Peoples

Manchester United have announced Guillermo Varela has joined Real Madrid on a season long loan deal.

The 21-year-old moves to the Santiago Bernabeu and will go straight into their Segunda B (second division) side to gain valuable experience of playing first-team football.

Given that Varela only played half a season with United’s Under-21s last year due to going back to Uruguay for a family emergency, it’s a great move for him and a chance to shine.

Having a mentor like Zinedine Zidane will be great for Varela and he could get a big opportunity if he impresses out there with Madrid.


Louis van Gaal has decided to send Varela out on loan instead of letting him continue with the Under-21s and that is something most fans would want to see as the Under-21s, given how poor the current structure of the league is.
