Raphael Varane 'could be out for another MONTH after being forced off the pitch with a hamstring injury' during Manchester United's Champions League clash against Atalanta

  • Raphael Varane was forced off injured during Man United's clash with Atalanta
  • The French defender limped off the pitch after just 38 minutes of action in Italy
  • As a result, Mason Greenwood was brought as a replacement by the United boss 
  • Reports from France are now saying that Varane could be out for four weeks
  • Therefore, Varane will miss the Manchester derby at Old Trafford this weekend
  • Manchester United could also be without Victor Lindelof when they face City

Raphael Varane will miss the Manchester derby at Old Trafford this weekend after it was confirmed that he will be out of action for a month.

Varane suffered a hamstring injury in Manchester United’s draw with Atalanta in the Champions League on Tuesday in only his second game back after recovering from a groin problem.

The former Real Madrid defender had scans on Wednesday and will now miss Saturday’s derby clash with Manchester City as well as the games against Watford, Villarreal, Chelsea and Arsenal after the international break.

That is a major blow for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer considering United leaked 11 goals in three games during Varane’s recent absence.

Solskjaer could also be without Victor Lindelof against City after he missed the Atalanta game through injury, depriving United of two of the back-three that kept a clean sheet at Tottenham last weekend.

The United boss may have to change the 3-4-1-2 formation he lined up with against Spurs and Atalanta, although Luke Shaw could be used as a centre-back alongside Harry Maguire and Eric Bailly.

Shaw responded to United staying top of the group with a late equaliser in Bergamo by reminding his teammates that they were in a similar position last season but dropped into the Europa League after losing their last two games to Paris Saint-Germain and RB Leipzig.

‘We obviously learned from last year. We need to really, we don’t want to be in that situation again,’ said Shaw.

‘We need to take charge. We can’t relax just because we beat Spurs 3-0 and got an okay point in Italy, we need to keep improving.’

Meanwhile, United winger Tahith Chong’s loan spell at Birmingham has been cut short after he underwent surgery on a thigh tendon problem that will keep him out for up to five months.
