Manchester United defender Raphael Varane has returned to training and could be available to face Norwich City this weekend.
The Frenchman won’t feature against Young Boys in the Champions League this evening but the France international is closing in on a return to full fitness.
Supporters on Twitter are very happy to see Varane back on the training pitches at Carrington but they are hoping that the 28-year-old is not rushed back into playing following a hamstring injury:

Varane has missed the last six matches after pulling up in the first half of the 2-2 draw against Atalanta at the start of November.
Manager Ralf Rangnick will be delighted to have the World Cup winner back in the fold, especially ahead of a jam-packed fixture schedule over the festive period.
With Luke Shaw and Edinson Cavani also available again, it means there are only two players (Anthony Martial and Paul Pogba) currently on the treatment table.
