Angel di Maria is doing everything in his power to be fit for Sunday's FIFA World Cup final against Germany, says his agent.
The Real Madrid winger, who scored the extra-time winner in a 1-0 victory over Switzerland in the second round, limped out of his country's quarter-final against Belgium with a thigh complaint.
Di Maria subsequently missed Wednesday's semi-final with Netherlands, with Enzo Perez starting in his place, and remains a doubt for the clash with Germany at the Maracana.
The player's agent, Eugenio Lopez, reiterated on Friday that the 26-year-old was doing all he could to be available for selection.
"Angel is at a stage of recovery and there cannot be a time frame put on it," Lopez told radio station FM Delta.
"He was subjected to treatment with stem cells to accelerate recovery.
"Angel wants to play, no matter what, and he will make every effort to get there.
"Whether Angel will play will depend on the decision taken by [national coach Alejandro] Sabella."
