PREMIER - Man United: Raphaël Varane unavailable against Leicester?
Muscularly affected during the victory of the France team against Spain (2-1) allowing the Blues to win the Nations League 2021, Raphaël Varane (28) had to give up his place prematurely on Sunday evening.
Just before the break (43rd), the central defender of Manchester United injured himself. On poor support following a cross from Gavi, the Frenchman could no longer hold his rank and was finally forced to leave his partners, in favor of newcomer Dayot Upamecano (22). Bad news for the Varane which, fortunately, did not have an impact on the final outcome of the game but which should however cause harm to the Red Devils in the coming days.
Indeed, according to information from the daily L'Equipe, the former Madrid player is suffering from a right adductor injury and should not be able to play in the Premier League on Saturday in Leicester. The new Manchester United player had to pass more extensive examinations on his return to England, the first clinical examinations therefore indicated an unavailability of a few days.
