Stefan Radu: Expected to be out until November with a knee injury

The Romania international picked up the problem in training and scans have now revealed the extent of the damage.

Lazio confirmed that he had been diagnosed with a rupture of his medial knee ligament and would need to have his leg in a brace for around three weeks.

Radu will then be able to begin his rehabilitation but he is not expected to return to action until early November.

The 26-year-old, who can play at either centre-back or left-back, joined Lazio from Dinamo Bucharest in 2008 and had been linked with a move to Manchester City this summer.

The loss of Radu for the next couple of months will be a major blow to Lazio as they look to push on at the start of the season.

Lazio opened their Serie A campaign with a 2-1 win over Udinese but were then hammered 4-1 by defending champions Juventus.

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
