Relief for Argentina as Madrid's Di María escapes muscle tear

Real Madrid attacking midfielder Ángel Di María has suffered an edema in a muscle in his left leg, banishing worries that the Argentina international had torn the muscle while ruling him out of play until the final of the Champions League, on May 24.

The news will come as a relief to 'Albiceleste' coach Alejandro Sabella, who is finishing a scouting tour of European-based players prior to releasing a provisional list of 30 for the World Cup in Brazil.

According to the medical report released by Madrid today, Di María was not injured in the abductor muscle, as was believed at first following a 1-1 draw with Valladolíd. The edema, located in the pectineus muscle close to the groin, also affected the player's hip rotation, which caused 'Fideo' great pain at the weekend.

The Spanish club do not plan to field Di María for the last two matches of the Liga season, with the hope of recovering the Argentine star in time for the final against city rivals Atlético Madrid.
