Whilst no timeframe has put on the Belgian’s return to action – as is customary from Madrid, who detail the medical specifics without any potential return dates – it is suggested that such an injury can rule a player out for a month and up to six weeks in worrying Real Madrid news.
Since joining Real Madrid in 2019 Eden Hazard has missed 320 days and 50 games with injury.

Hazard had missed the last six weeks of action with a thigh muscle injury while he has been hampered by fitness problems across his time in Spain, limiting him to just 20 starts in the league from a possible 65.
The former Chelsea star has been beset by injury issues since his move to Madrid in 2019 and he has played just 14 matches in total this campaign.
