New Real Madrid signing Eden Hazard is struggling with a muscular injury that could rule him out of the upcoming Spanish La Liga opener with Celta Vigo this weekend.
Real Madrid face a tricky fixture against Celta Vigo in what’s their first league game of the new season.
Real Madrid confirmed the muscular injury via an official statement from the club earlier on Friday.
Eden Hazard has a muscular injury and he’s unlikely to feature against Celta Vigo.
Real Madrid would be hoping that their form improves when the new season starts having enjoyed a poor run of form in the club friendly matches played this summer.
The Los Merengues made Eden Hazard their club record signing earlier this summer as they splashed out over €300m on new players.
Real Madrid paid around €100m excluding add-ons for him this summer.
The Belgian international player is seen as the long-term replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo who left Real Madrid for Italian Serie A champions Juventus last summer.
Ronaldo ended his nine-year stay at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu to move to Turin.
Eden Hazard was the Chelsea talisman before his exit.
His last appearance for Chelsea came in the Europa League final when he scored twice to lead Chelsea to a 4-1 win over Arsenal.
