'Now that I know my team-mates, I can focus on what I want to win.

Brazil worldwide Fred, highly-rated but raw full-back Diogo Dalot and third-choice goalkeeper Lee Grant all arrived at United by early July, but nobody followed despite Mourinho's explicit desire to bring in two more players.

Varane worked under Mourinho at Real Madrid and has gone onto become a multiple time Champions League victor.
