Lisandro Martinez was at Carrington on Wednesday, according to Manchester United.

Lisandro Martinez was at Manchester United’s Carrington training facility on Wednesday to “watch his teammates train,” the team has disclosed.

Due to Martinez’s attendance at the training facility, rumors circulated that the Argentina international was moving on to individualized training as part of his recuperation from a foot surgery.

The center defender was in Carrington, according to a statement from Man United on Wednesday, but the team would not say if he had participated in a private session.

The 20-time English champions released a statement that said, “Manchester United defender Lisandro Martinez watched his teammates train at Carrington on Wednesday, as he continues with the early stages of his recovery from a foot injury.”

“Martinez has recently spent time in his native Argentina as he recuperates but the 25-year-old is now back at base and was in attendance for the squad’s training session, supporting teammates as they prepare for a big week of domestic and European action.”

The Argentine has played for Man United six times this season; his most recent appearance occurred in a mid-September match against Brighton & Hove Albion.

In order to treat the fractured metatarsal he sustained while playing for his side against Sevilla in the Europa League, Martinez first had surgery in April.

When preseason got underway, the center back was back in action. However, it wasn’t until early October that it was announced that he would require another surgery for the same problem.

Martinez is said to have exacerbated the problem against Arsenal at the beginning of September; later scans indicate that the defender’s first attempt to fix the issue was not successful.

Erik ten Hag, the head coach of the Red Devils, recently stated that the South American won’t be ready to play until Christmas.

On the other hand, Luke Shaw returned to full training on Wednesday, giving Man United a significant boost in fitness following his recovery from a muscle issue.

Shaw might be added to the team for Sunday’s match against Everton, though it would be unexpected to see him make an early comeback to the starting lineup after missing more than three months.

Tyrell Malacia and Jonny Evans, two more defenders, are still not eligible for selection. However, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, an Englishman, is set to return this weekend, having recovered from the sickness that kept him out of the match against Luton Town prior to the international break.
