This morning, as Manchester United defender Lisandro Martinez arrived in Argentine for the international break, it looked like he was healthy for the national team’s upcoming matches.
Despite being subbed off in the game against Arsenal at the weekend, it was said by the South American media he had no injury, and his smiles at the airport seemed to prove that.
However, according to the freshest update from TyC Sports, there’s no guarantee the Manchester United will be fit for Argentina’s games.
It’s made clear that there’s no official report from the doctors yet, so he ‘will be evaluated’ by the national team’s staff first.
Argentina already knew they could lose Martinez for the upcoming games, and that’s why manager Lionel Scaloni made a late call up on Sunday by adding Facundo Medina to the list.
Now Manchester United will surely be watching how things go in Buenos Aires in the coming days and awaiting for some updates, in hope it’s nothing serious amid what could already be classified as an injury crisis at Old Trafford in defence.
