RAPHAEL VARANE limped off in the first-half of France's Nations League final against Spain.
The France defender, 28, has handed Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer a potentially big blow as a result, with other first-choice centre-back Harry Maguire already out.
But as the first-half drew to a close, Varane went down without anyone around him.
Replays suggested the centre-back had stretched too much for a loose ball.
And medics rushed across the field to give him treatment.
However, Varane was unable to carry on playing.
And he was subbed off, with Bayern Munich's Dayot Upamecano coming on.
Man United now face an anxious wait over Varane's fitness for Saturday's game at Leicester.

The World Cup winner moved to Old Trafford from Real Madrid for £40million over the summer.
And Varane has made seven appearances in all competitions.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will now be saying his prayers as captain Harry Maguire is also out injured.
Victor Lindelof has already come into the side as a result.
And should Varane be sidelined as well, either Eric Bailly or Phil Jones will need to be called upon this weekend.
As for the Nations League final, Varane's replacement Upamecano was at fault when Mikel Oyarzabal put Spain ahead in the 64th minute.
Upamecano was easily shrugged off the ball by the Real Sociedad star, who then buried his effort past Hugo Lloris.
However, France fired back immediately thanks to a brilliant strike from Karim Benzema moments later.
