Lindelof’s hamstring injury kept him out of action until the end of March, and Varane’s muscular ailment kept him out of action until the beginning of April. Varane is leaving the Red Devils on a free transfer this summer.

On Wednesday night, as the 20-time English champions defeated Newcastle United 3-2 in the Premier League, both players were once more absent. Ten Hag has stated that the two might be eligible for the league championship game against Brighton, which is scheduled six days prior to the FA Cup final matchup with Manchester City.

“I can’t say in this moment [if anyone will return on Sunday] but we are working to bring players back,” the Dutchman told reporters in his pre-Brighton press conference.

“We have seen yesterday Licha Martinez [is back], he had a good session now as well. There were also others on the pitch like Rapha Varane, Victor Lindelof, they returned on the pitch.

“We have to see how far [off a return] they are on Sunday. Tomorrow we have off, Saturday we have training, and then we will see what we have.”

Nonetheless, it is anticipated that Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw will not play this weekend as well; instead, they will compete to be fit for the FA Cup final.

The spending cap proposals were approved by 16 teams, and their goal is to keep the gap between the Premier League’s lower-half teams and its financial titans from growing.

Nevertheless, a report from BBC Sport claims that three teams vying for European football—Manchester United, Manchester City, and Aston Villa—are thought to have voted against the proposal.
