Valencia midfielder Geoffrey Kondogbia may be out for up to three months with a reported thigh injury picked up against Man Utd. The Central African Republic international pulled up late on in Wednesday’s Champions League win over United and is being assessed by the club’s medical staff.
The 25-year-old is believed to have suffered a thigh strain that reports say is so serious it could rule him out until February or March.
Valencia are yet to comment on the injury but the signs are not good and Kondogbia may be absent for some time.

Los Che, who finished their Champions League group campaign in third place and will play in the Europa League in 2019, despite seeing off United at the Mestalla, will miss Kondogbia if he is ruled out for a considerable period.
The former Monaco and Inter Milan man has made 15 appearances in all competitions so far this term although has also had to cope with a persistent ankle injury as well at times.
