Raphael Varane injury update with Man Utd ace set not to play again before World Cup after going off in tears at Chelsea | The Sun

RAPHAEL VARANE is set to miss the remainder of Man Utd's games up to the World Cup after the extent of his injury was revealed.

The Frenchman suffered an injury against Chelsea after over-stretching on a tackle during the 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge.

He immediately crumpled to the ground and was left in tears as he walked off the pitch, knowing his injury could leave his hopes of playing in the World Cup in tatters.

And the nature of the injury he suffered has now been revealed.

According to Julie Laurens – who is a frequent guest for Champions League nights on BT Sports Goals show – Varane suffered a lesion on his femoral biceps which is less serious than first feared.

However, he added: "He should be out between three to four weeks and sees the MRI results as positive.

"He won’t play for United before the World Cup and then (Didier) Deschamps will have to make a call on him."

While United will doubtless be glad the 29-year-old has not suffered a season-ending affliction, there are still six important games to play before the season is halted for the tournament.

And these games could make or break the club's season, with their hopes of progressing to the knockout stages of the Europa League at crunch time.

The race for the top four is well and truly on too with United currently sitting in fifth – just one point behind fourth-place Chelsea.

In the three league games Varane has not started this season United have conceded seven goals.

His importance to the team cannot be understated, with he and Lisandro Martinez forming a formidable partnership which has kept five clean sheets in eight games when starting together.

For France it is also a big blow, with Varane one of the core members of the squad which won the last World Cup in 2018.

But Deschamps is blessed with a plethora of options, and could opt to bring in Arsenal stalwart William Saliba following his impressive start to the season.
