Manchester United's Guillermo Varela set for Frankfurt loan - sources

Manchester United defender Guillermo Varela has agreed a loan move to Eintracht Frankfurt, sources close to the Premier League club have told ESPN FC.

New United boss Jose Mourinho is willing to let Varela leave Old Trafford as he does not figure in the Portuguese's plans.

Varela has not featured for United in preseason so far and has not been training with the first team as Mourinho made him available for offers.

Matteo Darmian, Antonio Valencia and Timothy Fosu-Mensah are all ahead of Varela in the right-back pecking order at United.

Eintracht Frankfurt have moved quickly to agree a deal for Varela and the defender is set to spend next season on loan in Germany with a view to a permanent deal.

Varela, who joined United in the summer of 2013 from Penarol, made 11 appearances under Louis van Gaal last season, but failed to figure after March following United's Europa League exit to Liverpool.
