Varane was sidelined for United’s game against Liverpool after suffering a quad injury while on international duty with France earlier this month.

Varane’s injury came in the first half of France’s game against Spain earlier this month. The Manchester United defender grimaced as he lengthened his stride and cut a low cross from Gavi five minutes before the break.

It seemed innocuous, but the United center-half immediately walked over to the bench as he sat down on the floor asking for treatment.

The injury was a huge blow to Manchester United – given that they paid £ 40million to secure his services from Real Madrid over the summer.

However, the Red Devils received a welcome boost ahead of their clash with Tottenham this weekend as Varane returned to full training.

The Frenchman was seen bonding with the boss under the late Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at the club’s training ground.

Varane was also seen participating in several exercises. However, it has not yet been determined whether Varane will be fit enough to face Tottenham on Saturday – having missed United’s previous two games against Liverpool and Leicester.

Marcus Rashford, Bruno Fernandes and Harry Maguire were also among those taking part in Wednesday morning’s session.

Meanwhile, Solskjaer – who has been seen for the first time since Liverpool’s humiliation – led the session.

The United manager has been seen giving instructions to help the Red Devils rediscover their best form ahead of their clash with Nuno Espirito Santo’s men.

Solskjaer hopes his wisdom rubs off on the players as many believe Saturday’s game at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium will be the deciding factor in whether he stays at the club.
