Raphael Varane and Cristiano Ronaldo spent seven years together at Real Madrid, playing 200 games, and the Frenchman has revealed to the official site on how happy he is for them to be reunited.

I am very happy. He’s a legend and all players can learn when you play with him. It’s a great help for all players, for all young players, and of course he never stops scoring goals, so he will help the team.

Varane made his debut against Wolves at the weekend, assisting Mason Greenwood’s winning goal, and spoke of what it meant to him to play in his first game.

I was very, very happy to be here and to help the team get this victory. The feeling is absolutely amazing. The Premier League is very intense. The game it’s very fast and you know when you play this game, you are very concentrated and it’s very intense. I came here for that feeling.

The atmosphere is fantastic, and the game is very fast. You have a lot of action during the game. You have to be focused and very concentrated because it never stops. It’s attack, attack, counter-attack and it’s very fast.
