On 7th June, 2013, Manchester United signed him from Peñarol. He plays as a right-back defender.
He is David Moyes’ first signing as a United boss. Varela spent the end of last season on trial at Old Trafford.
He said; “I will have to learn English. Rodolfo Catino (Penarol`s club treasurer) taught me something. The structure is impressive.”
Catino, who travelled with Varela in order to complete the deal on behalf of the club, believes that the promising youngster can settle into life in a new country.
“The deal has been agreed,” he added. “There won`t be any percentage regarding any future transfer.
Varela, who played just one senior game for Penarol, is a full-back and will provide competition for the likes of Rafael and Fabio da Silva, Patrice Evra and Alexander Buttner.
