Man Utd and Co to REJECT Argentina’s request to leave players out of final round of Prem games to rest for World Cup

PREMIER LEAGUE clubs will reject Argentina’s request to leave players out of the final round of domestic games.

The South Americans are wanting to begin their World Cup preparations earlier than expected.

Prem clubs like Man Utd will not let their Argentine stars leave early for the World Cup

There are currently six players in the Prem who are involved with Argentina’s national side.

Two are at Manchester United in Lisandro Martinez and Alejandro Garnacho.

Another two play for Aston Villa – Emi Buendia and Emi Martinez.

Brighton’s Alexis Mac Allister and Tottenham’s Cristian Romero are also expected to be named in Lionel Scaloni’s final World Cup squad.

The clubs do not have to release their players until November 14, a day after the final round of league fixtures.

But Argentina want their stars to meet up earlier than that.

The Mail claims they already asked one English club to release their player before the final league match.

The unnamed club are understood to have instantly rejected Argentina’s request.


They also informed other Prem clubs who have stars from the South American country.

And the agreed consensus was that they too will snub Argentina should similar requests be made.

The report adds that some Spanish clubs have also been approached about letting players go early.

The final LaLiga games take place on November 8 and 9, with preliminary Spanish Cup matches on the 12th and 13th.

Some sides are exempt, while others usually play weakened teams.

Villarreal are believed to have given Tottenham loanee Gio Lo Celso the green light to depart early.

But Atletico Madrid, who boast three players in Nahuel Molina, Rodrigo de Paul and Angel Correa, do not want to risk an upset.

And sources at the club say they will reject Argentina’s early release request if one is made.
