28-year-old Man United star out for a ‘number of days’ due to injury on international duty

Manchester United ace Raphael Varane could be out for several days due to injury

According to L’Equipe (h/t The Mirror), Manchester United star Raphael Varane could be out for a number of days due to his adductor muscle injury.

The French international completed his move to Old Trafford at the start of the season after his iconic unveiling at the theatre of dreams. Since making his first start against Wolverhampton Wanderers in late August, Varane has cemented a good partnership at the back alongside Harry Maguire.

However, since the Englishman suffered a calf injury against Aston Villa last month, the defence has been a little shaky, and it is about to get potentially worse. Varane, who was called up for international duty with France, featured in both the semi-final and the final of the UEFA Nations League.

While he performed his duties admirably in the semis against Belgium, he suffered an injury in the final and was taken off the pitch after just after an hour.

 Although Les Bleus went on to win the game and lift the trophy, an early set of tests have revealed that the Frenchman has suffered an injury to his right adductor muscle.

Normally, these kinds of injuries take a week or two to recover from, making it highly unlikely that the 28-year-old will play any kind of role against Leicester City on the weekend.

In fact, Varane, who has now returned to United’s training complex, is set to undergo some more tests as the club want to ensure the extent of the injury.

The Old Trafford outfit are set to play Liverpool, Atalanta, Tottenham Hotspur, and Man City soon and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would be hoping to have the 4-time Champions League winner back fit as soon as possible.
