Raphael Varane injury latest: Manchester United star CB out for … – NBC Sports

Raphael Varane will miss Manchester United’s marquee clash with Arsenal on Sunday, the club says, though according to reports it could be a longer spell on the sidelines for the French center back.
The BBC reports that Varane will miss a few weeks but that ‘club sources’ say it won’t be as many as the six mentioned elsewhere, having left at halftime of United’s 3-2 comeback win over Forest at the weekend.

The club has Lisandro Martinez, Victor Lindelof, and Harry Maguire its in center back ranks and could also extend Jonny Evans’ short-term deal.
United improved its Varane-less performances under Erik ten Hag, but the club is unquestionably better in Premier League play when he’s at the back.
