Real Madrid have confirmed that Eden Hazard suffered a broken ankle against Levante on Saturday.

The 29-year-old attacker limped out after 67 minutes of the fixture, which was just his second back after a previous three-month absence due to a hairline crack in his foot.

In a statement released by the club, it was confirmed: “Eden Hazard has been diagnosed with a fracture to his right distal fibula by the Real Madrid medical department. His recovery will continue to be assessed.”
