A report reveals when Inter Milan midfielder Davide Frattesi could make his return to the pitch after sustaining a slight knock.
Earlier today, the club’s official website released a statement confirming the player suffered a slight muscle strain on the flexors of his right thigh.
While test results confirmed that the player avoided a serious injury, he still faces time on the sidelines, but the Nerazzurri are hoping it would be a rather short spell.
According to La Gazzetta della Sport via FcInter1908, Frattesi will certainly miss tomorrow’s match against Salernitana. The Nerazzurri take on the Granata in a Serie A clash at the Arechi Stadium.
The Italian is also unlikely to recover in time for the European clash against Benfica. Simone Inzaghi’s men will host the Portuguese giants in the second matchday of the Champions League group stage on Tuesday.
Afterwards, the club’s medical staff will be closely monitoring the 24-year-old’s condition.
Inter will be hoping to have the former Sassuolo man available for next weekend’s home contest against Thiago Motta’s Bologna. This will be the final fixture before the October international break.

Therefore, if Frattesi can’t shake off the knock in time, he’d have to delay his return to the encounter against Torino on October 21.
Moreover, the source notes that the Italian’s injury has sabotaged Simone Inzaghi’s plans for tomorrow. The manager was reportedly planning on starting Frattesi and granting Henrikh Mkhitaryan some rest.
The Armenian has thus far started every match in the season. However, an emerging report now tips Davy Klaassen to take the veteran’s stead in the middle of the park.
