Real Madrid attacker Luka Jovic has fracture his right heel after returning to Spain from the coronavirus lockdown
Jovic was back at Madrid’s Valdebebas base on Wednesday for Covid-19 tests and medical examinations as Real stepped up their preparations for a return to training on Monday.
But if LaLiga does get back under way as planned in June, the 22-year-old now looks unlikely to be fit.
But, on Friday, the Spanish club announced the news on their official website: “After the tests carried out today on our player Luka Jović by the Real Madrid Medical Services, he was diagnosed with an extra-articular fracture in the calcaneus bone of the right foot.”
Real are due to return to training on Monday as part of the four-phase plan by LaLiga to resume the season after the coronavirus-imposed break, but Jovic will no longer be able to join his team-mates.
The 22-year-old already made headlines during the crisis when he broke lockdown rules in his native Serbia after returning from Madrid back in March.
