French center back Raphael Varane got injured at halftime against Spain in the finals of the UEFA Nations League and pulled his groin, and was substituted in a win over Spain 2-1. Due to this, he will have to sit out for a couple of weeks. Manchester is already without their captain Harry Maguire, who missed the last two games due to a calf injury and doesn’t seem like that he will join the team soon even after light practices during the international break. Even their right-back Wan-Bissaka who is healthy but will miss his next UCL game against Atlanta as he was shown a red card in their first match against Young Boys.

Solskjaer still feels that English forward Marcus Rashford will be able to play against Leicester after coming through a behind-closed-doors game with Blackburn last week. The 23-year-old has only played 60 minutes in European Championship and showed no signs of ill effect.

Italian football journalist Fabrizio Romano also reported about this via his tweet after the official statement from the Premier League club Manchester United. Varane who recently left Real Madrid alongside Ramos, his injury came at the wrong moment as Manchester are intending for the title and with all the injuries trip to Leicester in the Premier League, the midweek visit of Italian side Atalanta in the Champions League and potentially the meeting with Liverpool at Old Trafford on October 24. He is the centerpiece of their defence, he brings toughness, presence of mind, and veteran presence and provides the red devil a balanced defence. Manchester right now stands at 4th in the Premier League table and will go against Leicester City on 16th October, 7:30 PM IST.
