Now Louis van Gaal has confirmed that the striker will need surgery to fix the injury, which is a huge shame.
“I have Rooney, I have Martial, I have Rashford,” Van Gaal said. “I had Will Keane but Keane is injured and will be operated on. When I have more players, I will rotate.”
This is a massive shame for Will Keane himself more than anyone else. With the squad looking extremely thin on the ground, his big chance was certainly about to come. Now it looks like he is done for the season, and unfortunately that could be curtains on his Manchester United career altogether.
