Manchester United defender Raphael Varane suffered an injury scare during France friendly match against Ivory Coast on Friday, though the comments suggest he won’t miss any time.

Varane was named in France’s squad by manager Deschamps for the international break and the centre-back started against Ivory Coast ahead of the weekend but was substituted off in the second half for Arsenal loanee William Saliba.

After the game, Deschamps confirmed Varane has a ‘small problem with his foot’, but the 28-year-old jogged off the pitch to be replaced by William Saliba during the game and that suggests the injury isn’t serious.

Manchester United will hope the summer transfer from Real Madrid is injury free after him missing out on three games in October for groin injury he suffered while on international duty.

Although United’s £34m deal to sign Varane in the summer was remarkable value, the World Cup winner has built quite an unwanted injury record in Manchester.

The centre-back made his return against Tottenham but suffered a hamstring injury just one week later away at Atalanta. That problem was more severe and Varane was sidelined for well over a month, only returning to play Newcastle just after Christmas.

Manchester United will hope Varane is available for the match against Leicester City on Saturday 2 April at Old Trafford in an important Premier League match as the battle for the Premier League Top Four Race continues.
