Manchester United midfielder Angel di Maria has reportedly suffered yet another injury during a training session on Tuesday.

According to Goal, the Argentine international received treatment after Tuesday's training session and it is feared that it could be a recurrence of the Pelvis injury that kept him out of United's matches during the Christmas period.

The British record signing underwent treatment at United's Carrington training base, and Di Maria who has already missed games in the past due to injury, could be sidelined yet again if it is a recurrence of a previous injury.

Louis van Gaal's team travel to South Wales to face Swansea City on Saturday and the current setback has put the Argentine's participation in doubt.

The former Real Madrid star, who made a blistering start in the Premier League with three goals and four assists in his first six games, has struggled in recent months and has scored just one goal in his last 16 appearances.

Di Maria's injury will add to the Dutchman's fitness worries as Phil Jones and Michael Carrick are also sidelined with knee and calf injuries respectively.

However, the manager recently revealed that striker Robin van Persie has recovered from injury that kept out of the FA Cup game against Preston North End and is set to return for the trip to the Liberty Stadium.

Meanwhile, Wayne Rooney has reportedly advised Di Maria to hire a Gurkha like he does, to guard his house after the recent break in that has left the Argentine star living in a hotel with his wife and one-year-old daughter.

"Angel's wife Jorgelina has been left terrified by the attack and won't go back to the rented house in Cheshire," a source close to the club said, as quoted by the Mirror.

"Wayne has suggested a Gurkha like the one who protects his and Wes Brown's places. Their guy has had a decorated career in the Army and no one dares go anywhere near the houses," the source added.
