Real Madrid reveal extent of Asensio's injury

Real Madrid fear Asensio is out for the season after confirming extent of injury

July 24, 2019 By Ali M.
This is bad news for the Spaniard and the club.

The medical report is in for Marco Asensio and it's bad news for the player and the club. Real Madrid announced on Wednesday, a while after the win over Arsenal, that the attacker has ruptured his ACL and the external meniscus of his left knee.

This means the Spaniard is all but destined to miss the majority of the season, if not the entire 2019/2020 campaign. This is a huge blow for the attacker as he looked to fight for his spot in Zidane's lineup.

He came on in the second half in the pre-season clash with the Gunners and even scored the equalizer, as Los Blancos had gone 2-0 down. However, he was only on the pitch for two minutes before he suffered this nightmare.

The 20-year-old went down holding his knee and it didn't take long for everyone to know something serious was up. The player was later stretchered off the pitch in tears, with Zidane later admitting that it did not look good and that he was rushed to the hospital. He is now 

This means Los Merengues will be without a key talent as they look to bounce back from their disappointing campaign last season. The Spanish giants look to compete in all competitions but will have to do it without the starlet.

This could also mean bad news for Arsenal. The Gunners were set to sign Dani Ceballos on loan from Real Madrid but Emery admitted that Asensio's injury throws everything into doubt. Furthermore, questions are being asked as to whether the club will keep Gareth Bale as they will be short on wingers.
