A scan was taken on Romelu Lukaku’s ankle and it has been revealed that he has no fracture or structural damage.
The former Everton Player netted 11 times in 10 games since joining the Red Devils for £75 million over the summer, is away on international duty with Belgium.
A statement released by the national team read: “Romelu Lukaku underwent an MRI scan but no fracture or structural damage has been diagnosed.
Jose Mourinho is already having to contend with an untimely injury to Paul Pogba, with the £89m midfielder ruled out “long-term” with a hamstring complaint.
The Red Devils could do without picking up any more knocks as they will return to domestic action on October 14 with a crunch clash against old adversaries Liverpool.
With Belgium refusing to rule Lukaku out of their upcoming fixtures, that would suggest that a period of rest is all that is required to get the powerful frontman back up to speed and ready to lead the line once again.
