The centre-back was withdrawn during the first half of France’s game with Spain, which Les Bleus won 2-1 at the San Siro.
It marked the latest trophy in his glittering career, with Reds team-mates Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial also part of the successful side.
The Red Devils begin a busy period with an away game at Leicester City on Saturday. Following the home Champions League tie with Atalanta, league fixtures against Liverpool and Tottenham complete a tough month.
Meanwhile, Manchester United superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has become the first men’s player to score ten hat-tricks in international football.
The Portuguese striker achieved the feat in Portugal’s match against Luxembourg in Group A qualifying game for the 2022 World Cup. Ronaldo converted two penalties before netting a late header to help Portugal record a 5-0 victory.
The striker has now scored 58 career hat-tricks, including 10 for Portugal.
