Manchester United have confirmed that Raphael Varane will miss a few weeks, after suffering a groin injury on international duty.

Varane was taken off during the first half of their 2-1 win over Spain on Sunday.

The 28-year-old was then accessed by club doctors after returning to Manchester on Monday.

Tests have concluded that the defender 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.
