Manchester United new boy Raphael Varane has hit the ground running at Old Trafford and is already being held up as an example to the rest of the squad.
The Frenchman joined United for a fee of around £39m earlier this summer after deciding to leave Real Madrid.
Varane made his debut in a 1-0 win against Wolves last weekend, helping United to break Arsenal’s 28-match unbeaten record away from home.
The former Lens man looked composed alongside Harry Maguire and he adds some much-needed pace and experience to the centre of United’s back four.
A visa issue held up Varane’s move to Manchester but the Sun claim he’s settled in quickly at Old Trafford and his team-mates already look to the World Cup winner for guidance.
Varane has won the Champions League on four occasions and he was United’s most decorated player before the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo.
The Frenchman’s arrival has been bad news for Victor Lindelof, who lost his place to Varane for the win against Wolves.
However, the newly-appointed Sweden skipper says he embraces the competition.
‘It’s great, I play in one of the world’s biggest clubs and they have very good players,’ said Lindelof.
‘We will have a competitive situation and I only see it as positive that we have got a good player in the squad.’
