Eden Hazard’s first season at Real Madrid has suffered another setback as he was injured during a training game this week.
The Belgian star has been haunted by injuries since moving to the Spanish capital for £ 88 million last summer, having started just 13 league games under Zinedine Zidane.
After missing the last two games of Madrid after injuring his ankle in last month’s win over Espanyol, he returned to training on Tuesday.

But he was forced to withdraw towards the end of a training game with more problems around his ankle, according to Cadena SER.
Hazard missed nearly three months into the season after breaking a bone in his foot during a Champions League trip to PSG in November.
And he was forced to undergo surgery on his troublesome ankle in the US in March.
It gives manager Zidane a headache, as Madrid is approaching their first LaLiga title since 2017.

They have four more games in the league, starting with Alaves’ visit on Friday-evening, but the Belgian international is now in great doubt to play again.
He has only scored once in 19 games at Bernabeu since his stunning last season with Chelsea earned him the move he had dreamed of.
