The Argentine striker looks certain to miss at least the crunch clash with Roma after picking up the problem during the club’s victory over Bologna on Saturday
Inter striker Mauro Icardi could be set for a lengthy absence after the Serie A club confirmed he has suffered medial knee ligament damage.
Icardi sustained a sprain to the ligament during Saturday’s 2-1 Serie A win over Bologna.
Inter tweeted on Monday to confirm the 23-year-old’s injury, which almost certainly rules him out of this weekend’s crunch clash against top-three rivals Roma, while reports in Italy suggest the Argentine will be out of action for a month.
