Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is sweating on the chances of Edinson Cavani being available for Manchester United's clash with West Brom this weekend.
Cavani has been on international duty with Uruguay, who have seen up to eight of their stars test positive for Covid-19.
Cavani has spent the last two weeks in the secure bubble of the Uruguayan squad, which faced games against Colombia and Brazil.
But news that there has been an outbreak of the virus in Oscar Tabarez's squad has set alarm bells ringing at United.
Cavani, 33, is now travelling back from Montevideo following Uruguay's 2-0 defeat to Brazil and will undergo testing at United's Carrington's training complex.
If the veteran striker tests positive he will have to self isolate for two weeks and would miss crucial games against the Baggies, Southampton and Champions League rivals Basaksehir and Paris Saint Germain.
United will routinely test all their players who have been away on international duty.
But there will be particular concern where Cavani is concerned due to the high number of team-mates he's had direct contact with who have now tested positive.
Cavani was forced to quarantine for a fortnight after signing for United from PSG in the summer transfer window on a free transfer.
The former Napoli ace had arrived in Manchester from Paris and had to adhere to the strict rules in place concerning people who travel to the UK from countries on the banned list.
Cavani then revealed he had contracted coronavirus after returning from a holiday in Ibiza with some of his old PSG teammates following the end of last season.
Cavani has scored one goal in five appearances for United this season.
