​Real Madrid have confirmed striker Rodrygo has sustained a hamstring injury for the duration of pre-season and although no date has been place on his return, he appears set to miss the club’s La Liga opener against Celta Vigo – meanwhile backup goalkeeper Andriy Lunin has joined Spanish side Genuine Valladolis on a season-extended loan.

The 18-year-old joined Los Blancos this summer season from Santos for a charge in the area of €45m on a seven-year deal as Zinedine Zidane invested heavily in his squad for the duration of his very first transfer window because returning to the Santiago Bernabeu. 

Their new signing appears unlikely to be match in time for his ​La Liga bow, on the other hand, after ​Madrid confirmed on their ​official website that the young forward has suffered an injury for the duration of pre-season, with ​Goal stating that the hamstring injury he picked up will retain him out for 3 weeks.

A brief statement study: “After the tests carried out on our player Rodrygo by the Genuine Madrid Health-related Solutions he has been diagnosed with an injury in the correct rectus femoris muscle. His recovery will continue to be assessed.”

Zidane’s males head into the new campaign with a substantial quantity of stress on their shoulders soon after a pretty miserable summer season of pre-season fixtures, with the most substantial outcome becoming the 7-three demolition at the hands of fierce rivals ​Atletico.

With Rodrygo now confirmed out, he joins fellow sidelined stars Ferland Mendy and Marco Asensio, the latter becoming set to miss the entirety of the coming season following a horrific cruciate ligament rupture.


As players stay out of action, additional stars are set for time away from the Bernabeu soon after the club ​confirmed goalkeeper Lunin joined La Liga side Genuine Valladolid on a season-extended loan. The young stopper is behind fellow goalkeepers Thibaut Courtois and Keylor Navas in the pecking order, therefore will earn some substantially-necessary game time.
