The Red Devils announced a couple weeks ago that they had agreed a deal with Real Madrid to sign the French defender.

With the Premier League season set to commence next week, Varane is yet to make the move official but Solskjaer reveals his visa issues held up the transfer.

“[It’s] Paperwork now, you know, with Brexit and all that. I was going to say malarkey but I don’t want to go into politics!," Solskjaer told the club's official website.

“It’s cost us a few days, with the visa, but he’s been looking after himself.

“Of course, we’ve got his medical first and hopefully that’s going to be done soon.”

The Norwegian also provided an update on fellow new signing Jadon Sancho, who is also yet to make his first appearance.

“They still haven't trained with us, and I need to see how they are," he added.

“I can't see them being available for Everton, but hopefully they will be ready to be on the bench [against Leeds].”
