Henrikh Mkhitaryan has returned to squad training ahead of Inter’s Champions League final against Manchester City in Istanbul on Saturday.
Inter Team News
Mkhitaryan has played a key role in Inter’s run to their first Champions League showpiece in 13 years, starting 11 of their 12 matches.
But the veteran midfielder is in a race to be fit, having missed the Nerazzurri’s final three Serie A games of the season with a hamstring injury.
“I’m fine, as you have seen me, I will do everything to play this game,” he said on Monday. “There is still time, I hope to help the team in this final.”
Mkhitaryan was back in squad training on Wednesday, but may have to settle for a place on the bench.
Milan Skriniar, who was on the bench for last weekend’s game against Torino, should be ready to start for Simone Inzaghi’s side.
But Joaquin Correa is a doubt after sustaining a calf injury during the Coppa Italian final win over Fiorentina a fortnight ago.
Inter Predicted Lineup
Inter Predicted XI (3-5-2): Andre Onana; Milan Skriniar, Francesco Acerbi, Alessandro Bastoni; Denzel Dumfries, Nicolo Barella, Hakan Calhanoglu, Marcelo Brozovic, Federico Dimarco; Edin Dzeko, Lautaro Martinez.
