Manchester United have confirmed that star defender Raphael Varane will miss a few weeks after suffering a groin injury on international duty.
Varane was taken off during the first half of France’s 2-1 win over Spain in the Nations League final on Sunday.
The 28-year-old was then accessed by club doctors after returning to Manchester on Monday, with tests concluding that he will be out for a while.
“Raphael Varane sustained a groin muscle injury in the UEFA Nations League final and has commenced rehabilitation at the club. He will be out for a few weeks,” a United statement said.
The news will come as a further blow to manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who is already without captain Harry Maguire.
Maguire has missed the last two fixtures with a calf problem and will likely not be fit to face Leicester City on Saturday.
