Distraught Man Utd fans say 'season's done' as injury crisis gets even worse after Raphael Varane update | The Sun

MANCHESTER UNITED have been handed a huge blow as Raphael Varane is reportedly set to be out for over a month.

The French defender is feared to have picked up an injury during the 3-2 win over Nottingham Forest.

Sky Sports have now claimed that the knock Varane took could keep him out for up to six weeks.

Varane, 30, could now join Luka Shaw and Mason Mount on the treatment table as the club's injury crisis worsens.

If he is out then the defender could miss vital games against Arsenal, Brighton, Burnley, Crystal Palace, and Brentford.

And distraught fans are now already claiming that Man United's season is over on social media.

While a fifth added: "Utterly disastrous, the club is in a total mess at the moment."

The report claims that this means that the potential injury to Varane could affect Harry Maguire's future.

The defender had been linked with a loan move to West Ham but there had been issues with his pay-off from United.

However, he may now need to come back into the fold at Old Trafford in order to fill in for Varane.

He is yet to feature in the Premier League this season and was named on the bench during the games against Wolves and Forest.

Manager Erik ten Hag could also turn to Victor Lindelof who can play at centre-back.

Jonny Evans could also be an option for United however his contract situation is not clear, with the club in talks over extending his stay.

Earlier this month, Ten Hag said: "In this moment, [he’s] not [under a long-term contract].

"I have to say, it's a short [deal] for this month, he’s under contract. But we are talking."

The potential injury to Varane could however put an end to speculation that he could leave the club for Saudi Arabia.

The defender was reportedly a target for Al-Ittihad, where he would have linked up with compatriots N'Golo Kante and Karim Benzema.
