Toni Kroos has become the latest Real Madrid player to suffer a muscular injury following Saturday’s 4-2 victory over Granada.
The German midfielder has suffered an injury in the adductor muscle of his left leg, causing him to be replaced in the 33rd minute of the match against the Andalusian club.
Kroos has been included in the German national squad to face Argentina and Estonia this month but it is now certain that he will be withdrawn from Joachim Low’s squad.
“After the tests carried out today on our player Toni Kroos by the Real Madrid Medical Services has been diagnosed with a lesion in the adductor of the left leg, which is pending evolution,” a Real Madrid statement read.
There have been multiple absentees for Madrid in recent weeks with Marcelo, Nacho Fernandez, Ferland Mendy, Marco Asensio, Brahim Diaz and Luka Modric - who replaced Kroos in Saturday’s encounter - among those to miss out.
No timeframe has been given for the central midfielder’s layoff but it is estimated that he will be back in first-team training for Madrid within the next two weeks, meaning he will be available for selection after the international break.
