Ralf Rangnick has revealed that Raphael Varane and Edinson Cavani have both returned to Manchester United training as they approach a comeback.
Both players have missed the team’s last six matches in all competitions, with Varane who has had a hamstring injury and Cavani complains that he has problems with the tendons.
Fortunately, the pair are approaching a comeback when Rangnick revealed that they are training again, although neither of them will be ready in time to be part of Wednesday’s visit from Young Boys, where United only need one point to confirm the top spot in their Champions League group.
“They both can not play tomorrow but they were part of the training today. Edi even yesterday, Rapha it was the first time he was on the field with the team,” said Rangnick.
“If all goes well, I expect them both to be back in full training next week, so from Monday they will participate in all training sessions.
“They are both top players. Of course we would like to have them on board as soon as possible, but especially with Rapha and his previous injury record, we have to make sure we will have him until the end of the season, so it’s also about sustainability and not just to get him in shape as soon as possible.
“It would be great to have both players available as soon as possible, but of course for the rest of the season.”
Rangnick also discussed the condition of Anthony Martial, who was expected to play against Crystal Palace this weekend before complaining of knee pain after the last training session.
“We had a meeting with the medical department and we agreed that he would try to recover,” he continued. “We have to make sure he reduces the pain in the next few days and hopefully get him to train again next week.”
There was no formal update on left-back Luke Shaw, who has missed four games with a series of head injuries, but the left-back was seen in training on Tuesday alongside Jesse Lingard, who was absent from the Palace match with an ankle problem. .
About Lingard, Rangnick added: “Everyone has the chance to perform and present themselves. I’m happy to be able to give playing time to a lot of them tomorrow.
“It’s the perfect time to get to know the players.”
