    Won't play vs Sevilla and is in doubt for both Inter and even the Classico as well. So far though no plans on him having surgery.

    Not sure quite what his knee problem amounts to. It would be unusual for such a young athlete to have worn away the cartilage under his patella. Sometimes rough cartilage can just be smoothed out. Professional athletes can sometimes get transplants from cadavers or pigs. Most commonly, an athlete just has to deal with the pain. There can be some recovery just over time, but this amount of time is more likely to be years than months.

    We need to let him recover and buy a centre back in Jan or get one on loan. Pique is struggling, Vermaelen is injury prone.

    If Pique or Vermaelen is injured then we're screwed.

    I blame Valverde. He just fucking drains the players by not rotating.

    Blame him for what? EV wanted an extra CB last season and didn't get it.
    And CBs are rarely rotated, Vermaelen actually had his healthiest season under EV, Umtiti injury isn't even known and it happened so early in the year.
    Even Pique has sometime to rest after international retiring and I am not sure his form can be attributed to fatigue

    According to MD, if Umtiti has to have surgery he will be out for 4 months.

    Going by some of the reports today, it seems like it's not looking good for him as his injury seems worse than feared.

    Not good. If he’s going to need surgery he should just have it so he can start to recover. Lenglet and Verm can cover for him but we need another defender to push pique.

    Considering Cartlidge injuries are no joke especially if it wears out. I really hope that this doesn't affect Umtiti long term, considering he's only 24/25 years old in November.

    Still has a future ahead of him and it would suck if his knee problems persist in the coming years.

    Conservative treatment should always be the first line of treatment in those cases for his own long term health. Puyol was once considered an iron man until he had to do a surgery after a surgery on his knees.

    It should be done out of necessity, not for saving time

    Umtiti was awesome before the injury. Easy top three cb in the world. After coming back you could see the difference. I thought it was the contract issue that distracted him but in hindsight it looks like the injury has been the cause of his lackllustre form.

    Whatever, at least the coward is now forced to play Lenglet, hope he isn't too daft and plays Vermaelen too.

    It's bad to lose him now. We need to be better in defence, and he is the most stable of the CB's we have, generally speaking.
    Usually Pique needs competition to pull himself together, so in that regard Umtitis injury is bad news as well :/

    will it be better for him to get a surgery at the end of this season? if we buy someone in January, then we'll have 5 CBs. Vermaelen will probably leave and if we buy De Ligt, we'll still have 5 CBs which is one more than necessary.
