  • He was seen sitting on the bench icing his thigh after the incident took place  


Manchester United will be left sweating over the fitness of Raphael Varane after he limped off injured against Spain on Sunday night. 

Varane winced as he lengthened his stride and cut out a low cross from Gavi at the expense of a corner five minutes before the interval. 

It seemed innocuous but the United centre-half signalled towards the bench immediately and, although he tried to continue was soon on the floor asking for treatment.

As a result, Deschamps summoned Dayot Upamecano to replace him. It was a reminder, if needed, of the depth of quality at his disposal.

United will be concerned over the extent of Varane’s injury, given he was seen sitting on the bench with ice strapped to his right quad.

Should he be ruled out of action for the time being, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could be forced to face Leicester without both Varane and Harry Maguire.

Therefore, the United manager may call upon Eric Bailly or Phil Jones at the weekend as Victor Lindelof has already been selected to replace the United captain

The injury will come as a blow to the club – considering they paid £40million to attain his services from Real Madrid over summer. 

As it stands, the World Cup winner has only made seven appearances in all competitions for the Red Devils.
