Inter forward Alexis Sanchez has suffered a potentially serious ankle ligament injury while on international duty with Chile.
The player, on loan from Manchester United, limped off after a knock to the left ankle during last night’s 0-0 draw with Colombia.
A statement from the Chilean Federation today confirms tests showed a “dislocation of the tendons” in his ankle.
More tests will be needed and he has been sent back to Milan for treatment with the Inter medical staff.
The wording of the statement suggests it is possible surgery will be required, depending on the results of the MRI.
The 30-year-old has only made four appearances in the Inter jersey so far this season, scoring one goal.
