Inter Milan defender Alessandro Bastoni should resume full training with the squad by tomorrow, according to the latest news updates.
The 24-year-old skipped Monday’s Italian Super Cup final against Napoli due to muscle fatigue in his left adductor.
Luckily for the Nerazzurri, they prevailed over the Italian champions despite the absence of the key defender. Lautaro Martinez snatched a late winner to put an end the Patenopei’s defiant stand.
Simone Inzaghi’s men have now returned to their base at Appiano Gentile and begun their preparations for the important weekend clash against Fiorentina.
According to Sky Sport Italia via FcInterNews, Bastoni partially trained with his teammates today. He spent the other portion of the session working separately.
Nevertheless, the source expects the Italy international to take part in the entire training session tomorrow and work alongside his teammates as normal.
As we reported earlier in the day, Inzaghi will likely keep Bastoni on the bench during the Artemio Franchi encounter.
The manager prefers to keep him fresh for the ensuing Scudetto showdown against Juventus on February 4th.

On the other hand, Sky reveals that Denzel Dumfries skipped Wednesday’s training session as he’s out on a family leave.
The source doesn’t mention a return date, so we’ll see if the Dutchman will report to training in the coming days.
Inzaghi has been trusting Matteo Darmian with the right wingback slot recently, leaving Dumfries on the bench.
The arrival of Tajon Buchanan also offers a fresh option for this playing position. Therefore, the Nerazzurri should be able to cope with the absence of the Netherlands international in case he remains away for an extended period.
