Manchester United Have Confirmed Raphael Varane Will Be Out Of Action For A Few Weeks

Varane lasted just 43 minutes of Sunday’s Nations League final between France and Spain as Didier Deschamps’ men came from behind to win 2-1 at the San Siro.


Replays showed Varane wincing as he raced back towards goal and the 28-year-old immediately gestured towards France’s medical staff that he would have to be replaced.

The centre-back who swapped Real Madrid for Old Trafford in the summer – was subsequently pictured with an ice pack around his thigh as he watched the second half from the substitutes bench.

‘Raphael Varane sustained a groin muscle injury in the UEFA Nations League final and has commenced rehabilitation at the club,’ a statement on Manchester United’s website said on Tuesday afternoon.

‘He will be out for a few weeks.’
