Real Madrid summer signing Eden Hazard will miss his side's opening La Liga game against Celta Vigo on Saturday, after it was announced that he had sustained a hamstring injury in training.
Hazard, who joined Los Blancos from Chelsea at the start of the summer in a deal worth an initial €100m, is yet to appear in a competitive fixture for the club – but his wait for an official debut will now have to wait after it was revealed he had suffered a hamstring injury in the build-up to Saturday's La Liga opener.
The club unveiled the news via a statement on their official website
"His recovery will continue to be assessed."
This comes just after Wednesday's confirmation that fellow summer signing and forward Rodrygo had also suffered a similar injury, with an issue in the right rectus femoris muscle expected to keep him out for around three weeks.
Alongside the Brazilian, Hazard
In a cruel twist of fate, the French left-back has also been struck down with a hamstring injury, and is unlikely to be passed fit in time to make his debut against Celta either.
