Edinson Cavani started for Uruguay against Chile on Tuesday night, but he didn’t last long after sustained an injury and was substituted off in less than 30 minutes.

The veteran striker, 35, was replaced late on by Luis Suarez at the Estadio San Carlos de Apoquindo having limped off with an apparent calf problem.

The extent of the injury is officially unknown, but it seems unlikely Cavani will feature against Leicester at Old Trafford this weekend.

Cavani has struggled for consistency this season. In fact, he has been unavailable for 21 games from a possible 40 fixtures across all competitions for United this season

With his contract expires at the end of the season, he’s set to leave United on a free transfer.

United currently sit sixth welcome Leicester to Old Trafford with four points adrift of Arsenal having played a game more.

Ralf Rangnick’s side also face Everton, Norwich, Liverpool and Arsenal in a crucial month as they desperately try to stay relevant in the race for a fourth-place finish term.
