Portuguese reports suggest Inter full-back Joao Cancelo could be out for two months with a knee injury.
He abandoned international duty after spraining his right knee during a training session this morning.
Flying back to Italy for further tests, details are beginning to leak out regarding the nature of the problem.
According to EFE, initial examination of the knee note some ligament damage and a possible two-month spell on the sidelines.
With this in mind, Inter have stalled Cristian Ansaldi’s transfer to Genoa, as he may well be needed.
Cancelo only joined the Nerazzurri last week from Valencia, on loan with option to buy for €33m.
