Raphael Varane is doing everything he can to get back to full fitness.

Varane sustained a hamstring injury against Atalanta earlier this month.

The Guardian reported the injury was set to keep him out for a full month of action.

Varane is trying his best to ensure his recovery goes smoothly, and keep in top shape.

The France international posted a picture from the gym at Carrington, with a message which read: “Turn frustration into motivation and come back stronger!”

Varane’s lay-off is the second spell out injured since he joined United.

He has made only six Premier League appearances to date, most recently in the 3-0 win at Tottenham.


In the last three seasons at Real Madrid he started 30 plus La Liga games.

It would be a surprise if Varane is back from injury before the Chelsea game, and even the Arsenal fixture would be a bonus.

United won’t want to rush him and risk him missing a busy December schedule.
