The Frenchman, who swapped Real Madrid for Old Trafford in the summer, has not featured for his new club since the start of November after collecting a series of injuries.
Varane initially hurt his groin while representing France in October, missing two Premier League matches, and was then forced off with a hamstring injury against Atalanta in the Champions League on November 2.
Caretaker boss Michael Carrick said it would still be some time before Varane is back in the United team, but he has been stepping up his rehabilitation and was out on the grass at Carrington in the past few days.
Varane himself is hoping he will be back in full training soon to start helping the team once again, while he has used his time on the sidelines proactively to make some changes to help him acclimatise to Premier League football.
‘I’m working very hard and, you know, footballers are like F1 [cars] so sometimes we have to change something and to improve the motor,’ he told MUTV.
‘I think I have to change a little thing because it’s a big difference, a big change.
‘The kind of work is different work so I have to adapt. I know that and I’m working very hard to be at my best as quickly as possible.
‘I know it’s big work but I’m ready to do it, to try to improve. I’m very excited to come back to help the team.’
United initially struggled in the absence of Varane, losing against Leicester City, Liverpool, Manchester City and Watford.
However, the Red Devils have rebounded since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s dismissal, drawing with Champions League holders Chelsea, beating Arsenal and then securing a 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace in Ralf Rangnick’s first game in charge – their first clean sheet in five Premier League matches.
