The Red Devils announced last month that they had agreed a fee with Real Madrid for the World Cup-winning Frenchman, rumoured to be an initial £34m plus add-ons.
However, Varane's move to Old Trafford has been held up due to visa issues, while he will also have to undergo a mandatory quarantine period upon arrival in the country.
Romano adds that Varane will pen a four-year deal with the club once his quarantine period and medical have both been completed, but he will not be ready for United's opening Premier League game against Leeds United following his arrival from an amber list country.
