Lindelof returned to United training, but was quickly struck by the coronavirus.

Prior to their Covid isolation, the defender and wife Maja spent time in hospital after youngest son Francis contracted viral meningitis.

And with Lindelof now stuck at home recovering from his bout of Covid, he has checked in with supporters that he hopes to be ‘back soon’.

In a short video message on Instagram, Lindelof said: “I just wanted to check back really quick and say thank you for all your messages over the past few weeks.

“I really appreciate it, so thank you very much for that.

“At the moment, I’m at home, I feel fine and hope to be back with people soon.

“Thank you very much once again, I hope you had a wonderful Christmas, I hope you have a great new year too and stay safe.”

Lindelof will be ruled out of United’s game against Burnley on Thursday evening.

Rafael Varane and Harry Maguire are likely to start alongside Eric Bailly before taking part in the Africa Cup of Nations with Ivory Coast.

Lindelof has been a key cog in the United machine this season, appearing 18 times in all competitions – deputing for Varane during his injury layoff.

Meanwhile, Paul Pogba has given fans a cryptic update of himself on Instagram with his transfer future up in the air and his return from injury on the cards.
