Manchester United defender Raphael Varane is back in training ahead of the team’s final game of pre-season tour in Australia.

Varane missed Manchester United’s last two matches with injury. While just a minor issue, United took a precautionary approach.

Now the France international has been pictured training in Perth ahead of Saturday’s fixture against Aston Villa.

Varane has struggled with his fitness since joining Manchester United a year ago. He made only 20 Premier League starts last season.

His issues on pre-season have left him behind in terms of game time, playing just 45 minutes so far in the opening game against Liverpool.

This has potentially left Varane behind Harry Maguire if United are looking to find a partner for new signing Lisandro Martinez.

United trained at Perth’s famous WACA stadium, with supporters in attendance for the open session, for the chance to see Erik ten Hag’s side prepare.

More pictures from the session can be seen below, with James Garner also involved, after missing all three of United’s matches so far…
