De Gea is attended by Spain’s team doctors and was immediately withdrawn from the training. The youngster, who missed the World Cup with a muscle injury, is likely to miss out Spain’s next two international matches.

Spanish newspaper AS reports that De Gea has aggravated an old injury suffered on little finger. The doctors will access his situation in the coming days but it is almost certain that he could be rested for Spain’s next two games against Belarus and Germany, mainly on precautionary grounds.

Judging from the report, it seems like the injury is not that serious. But, we will get a clear picture on this matter in few days’ time. With so many players out injured, especially defenders, last thing Manchester United fans want is injury to their star goal keeper. United fans can only hope he stays fit for their upcoming Premier League tie against Arsenal.
