Coentrao AWOL from Real Madrid

Fabio Coentrao has not trained with Real Madrid all summer despite having one year remaining on his contract with the club, say reports in Spain.

The 30-year-old spent the entirety of last season on loan at Lisbon-based giants Sporting CP but was due to return to the European champions this summer.

Indeed, Diario AS say he has not been seen in the last 62 days since appearing for Sporting in their Portuguese Cup final against Aves and has not posted on social media.

Reports suggest he has been training with a personal trainer but these are unverified and the reports notes his total cost to Los Blancos has been a whopping €55m (€30m transfer fee, €25m in wages).

Coentrao originally joined Madrid in 2011 but made only 43 La Liga starts for the European champions.
