Raphael Varane has added to Manchester United's defensive problems after he was ruled out for "a few weeks" with a groin injury.

The centre-back, a £34million summer signing from Real Madrid, sustained the problem in the first half of France's Nations League final victory over Spain on Sunday.

"Raphael Varane sustained a groin muscle injury in the UEFA Nations League final and has commenced rehabilitation at the club," said a United statement.

"He will be out for a few weeks."

With Harry Maguire also out with a calf injury it leaves manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer without his two first-choice centre-backs.
