A six-week injury, a devastating blow.
The emergency lights are on at Manchester United. It has been confirmed that star center-back Raphael Varane will be out of action for six weeks.
Varane started the last match against Nottingham Forest, but complained of discomfort after the first half. Recognizing that it was a long haul, manager Eric ten Haag didn’t push him too hard. “I didn’t want to risk him,” he said at the time. We have good replacements in Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof,” he said at the time.
At the time, it was unclear how serious Baran’s injury was, but the results were devastating. British outlet Sky Sports reported that Baran could be out for up to six weeks.
While Baran’s injury is a blow to the team, 먹튀검증 it also has a huge impact on United’s roster management. Baran’s injury is not only a blow to the squad, but it also has implications for United’s squad management. The recent announcement that West Ham, who were keen on McGuire, have pulled out of negotiations altogether has a lot to do with it.
Van Gaal is expected to comment on Varane’s status ahead of the weekend’s game against Arsenal. Once Baran is ruled out, the Gunners will go with a Lisandro Martinez-Lindelof center back pairing.
The Gunners are not only dealing with the loss of Varane, but also left-back duo Luke Shaw and Tyrrell Malacia. To make matters less painful for Van Gaal, summer signing Rasmus Højlund has shaken off a back injury and is available for selection against Arsenal.
