Manchester United’s right-back Guillermo Varela, who is currently loaned out to Bundesliga club Eintracht Frankfurt, has suffered a ligament injury which could keep him out for months.

In May 2013, Varela went on a two-week trial with English giants Manchester United after an impressive performance at the 2013 South American Youth Championship.

On 7th June, Manchester United announced they had reached an agreement to sign Varela from Peñarol for an undisclosed fee, rumoured to be around €2.8 million.

Varela was handed his Manchester United debut by the then Manchester United manager Louis Van Gaal.

He made his debut on 5 December 2015 as a half-time substitute for fellow academy player Paddy McNair in a goalless Premier League draw against West Ham United at Old Trafford.

Under new manager José Mourinho, Varela only made one appearance, as a substitute in the pre-season friendly game against Wigan Athletic.

Varela wasn’t taken in the squad for the pre-season tour of China. He was eventually sent on loan to Eintracht Frankfurt.

In the recent match against Darmstadt 98, Varela was involved in a collision with Darmstadt striker Sven Schipplock. He was substituted at the 7th minute.

Frankfurt manager Niko Kovac confirmed his injury, and sporting director Fredi Bobic told German publication Kicker: “I immediately had a bad feeling. It was a very unnecessary tackle.”

Varela is said to be out until the winter break. He will remain on loan until 30th June 2017.
