Though it appears that the 25-year-old had fully recovered over the summer, it now turns out this was not the case.
The Argentina international missed Man United’s recent wins against Burnley and the Carabao Cup victory over Crystal Palace.
In a statement via the club’s website, the Red Devils said ahead of their Premier League tie with Crystal Palace on Saturday: “Lisandro Martinez will be out of action for an extended period due to an aggravation of the foot injury he suffered in April.
“The Argentinian defender experienced a setback in our Premier League game against Arsenal earlier this month. Assessment is ongoing to decide next steps.
“Everyone at Manchester United sends Lisandro our best wishes and looks forward to him coming back as soon as possible.”
