Raphael Varane appeared to injure his knee yesterday while attempting to cut a pass to Chelsea striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. He received lengthy treatment on the pitch before being replaced by substitute Victor Lindelof.

Asked about the extent of Raphael Varane’s injury, Man United manager Erik Ten Haag said: “It’s hard to say how it is now because it’s so short after the game. We’ll have to wait 24 hours and then we’ll know what is. We have to wait until the medical team does their work and diagnoses.”

France will be quite worried about the extent of Varane’s injury. The defending champions are already set to miss two of their key players in Qatar – Paul Pogba and N’Golo Kante.

Pogba has not played since returning to Juventus this summer following knee surgery and is likely to miss the World Cup flight. Meanwhile, Kante has been officially ruled out due to the recurrence of a hamstring problem.

Who are the possible REPLACEMENTS of Varane for FRANCE?

France manager Didier Deschamps will have a selection headache if Varane ends up missing the World Cup. Deschamps seems to be relying on the defensive trio of Benoit Badiashile, Lucas Hernandez and Presnel Kimpembe. However, it will be interesting to see who he picks if the lanky centre-back misses the trip to Qatar.

Deschamps could possibly consider Liverpool’s Ibrahima Konate, Barcelona’s Jules Konde, Arsenal’s William Saliba and Bayern Munich’s Dayot Upamecano in Varane’s place. Konde is the most likely of replacements given his versatility, but Saliba and Upamecano are very much in contention if Deschamps is looking for a strong centre-back at the heart of the defence.
