Inter dealt blow as Buchanan faces 4-month layoff


Inter have been hit with a significant setback as winger Tajon Buchanan is set to undergo surgery following a tibia fracture, sidelining him for at least four months.

The 25-year-old Canadian international sustained the injury during a training session with his national team at the Copa America. What began as a routine Tuesday afternoon quickly turned into a day of misfortune for Inter Milan, as news of Buchanan’s injury reached the club.

Buchanan, who had been a key player for Canada in the tournament, suffered the fracture during practice, leading to the immediate cancellation of the training session. He was promptly taken to the hospital by ambulance for evaluation.

The timing of this injury is particularly unfortunate for Inter , as it comes in the wake of Juan Cuadrado’s departure on a free transfer. This double blow to their right-wing options may force the Nerazzurri to reconsider their transfer market strategy.

With Buchanan now facing a lengthy recovery period, Inter will need to adapt their plans for the upcoming season. The club may look to the transfer market to bolster their squad depth, especially in wide areas, to compensate for this unexpected loss.
