Dani Carvajal has heart condition

Real Madrid have announced that Dani Carvajal has been diagnosed with a viral infection affecting the membrane enclosing the heart.

It is not clear how long the right-back will be out for, nor how serious the condition is.

“Following tests carried out on Dani Carvajal, he has been diagnosed with a viral pericardium infection,” read a statement.

“His recovery will continue to be assessed.”

The symptoms of pericarditis can be similar to a heart attack when particularly serious but more often are represented by the sudden onset of sharp chest pain.

Carvajal only recently signed a new contract with Madrid until June 2022.
