Inter Milan will decide whether to include Juan Cuadrado in the Derby della Madonnina matchday squad on Friday.
The 35-year-old joined the Colombian national team for the international break. However, he ended up sustaining an injury while on international duty.
Luckily for the Nerazzurri, this turned out to be a slight knock. Therefore, he remains in the running for a place in Simone Inzaghi’s squad.
Yesterday, the Colombian trained separately following his return from South America.
According to Il Corriere dello Sport via FcInterNews, Inter will make a decision today regarding the wingback’s availability. The club’s medical staff has been monitoring the player’s condition closely.
So based on his physical condition, the club will decide whether to include Cuadrado or drop him from the matchday squad that will take on AC Milan on Saturday.
Elsewhere, Alexis Sanchez should rejoin his teammates today. He was supposed to attend yesterday’s training session, but logistical difficulties delayed his return.
