Manchester United have confirmed that both Jonny Evans and Raphaël Varane will be out of action for Erik ten Hag following injuries.

Manchester United will be without four of their first-team central defenders as Erik ten Hag selects his team to face Bournemouth in the Premier League.

“Manchester United defender Raphael Varane will be out for the next few weeks with a muscle injury sustained during our game against Chelsea last week,” a club statement read.

“The French World Cup winner is aiming to be back in action before the end of the season in May.”

The club then also confirmed that Jonny Evans is unavailable for selection for the upcoming tie against Bournemouth on Saturday evening.

“Fellow centre-back Jonny Evans will also miss Saturday’s game against Bournemouth with a shorter-term muscle issue. 

“Fans can watch Erik ten Hag’s pre-match press conference from 12:30 BST on Friday. Part two of the media briefing will be available from 22:30 the same day.”

According to Daily Mail writer Chris Wheeler, Varane is likely to leave United this summer, with the club not willing to offer him a new contract at the same wage he is currently on.
