Man United have been dealt a huge injury blow after it was confirmed Raphael Varane will be out of action for "a few weeks."
It is understood Varane sustained a groin injury while on international duty with France earlier in the week.
According to Metro UK, the versatile defender lasted just 43 minutes during France's UEFA Nations League final with Spain that saw Didier Deschamps men stage a dramatic comeback to win 2-1 at the San Siro.
Replays from the incident showed the centre-back wincing on the pitch before he gestured towards the medical team to be replaced.

He was later pictured with an ice pack around his thigh as he was forced to watch the rest of the match from the bench.
A United statement has since confirmed Varane picked a groin injury, with the club divulging he has already begun treatment.
"Raphael Varane sustained a groin muscle injury in the UEFA Nations League final and has commenced rehabilitation at the club," the club confirmed.
"He will be out for a few weeks," the United statement added.
Man United reach mutual agreement to prioritize Haaland's signing
Earlier, Legit.ng reported that in their bid to bolster their squad next season, Premier League giants Manchester United will reportedly chase the signing of Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland.
The Red Devils failed to land both Haaland and Harry Kane last summer, but reports say they are already on the trail of the Norwegian once again.
Both Haaland and Kane had their future in doubt during the summer transfer window as they were tipped to leave their respective clubs.
Man Utd were on the hunt for a prolific striker and they were linked with the pair, but a deal could not sail through.
In the end a deal for Haaland, valued at a rumoured £150million by Dortmund, proved unrealistic and unwise just 12 months before a £68million release clause is inserted into his contract with the German club.
