Manchester United defender Raphael Varane has been sidelined for “a few weeks” after sustaining a groin injury on international duty with France, the Premier League club said on Tuesday.

Varane, 28, was substituted in the first half of Sunday’s Nations League final against Spain, which world champions France won 2-1.

Varane’s central defensive partner Harry Maguire is recovering from a calf injury that kept him out of the club’s last two games before the international break as well as England’s World Cup qualifiers this month.

United begin a busy period with an away game at Leicester City on Saturday following the home Champions League tie with Atalanta, league fixtures against Liverpool and Tottenham complete a tough month.
