Real Madrid have announced their teenage star Rodrygo sustained a hamstring injury on Wednesday, which could reportedly rule him out for three months.

The Brazilian winger suffered the blow during Los Blancos’ 2-0 victory over Granada in midweek.

Rodrygo was pushed by former Watford defender Dimitri Foulquier, fell awkwardly and came off immediately for Marco Asensio.

Although the club did not confirm the extent of the injury, Marca reported the 19-year-old could be out for three months.

The news will come as a huge disappointment to boss Zinedine Zidane, who saw Rodrygo burst into his team in recent weeks.

The three-cap international was in tears as he left the pitch, but later posted on Instagram: ‘The crying can last one night, but the joy comes in the morning. Now it is a total focus on recovery and soon I am back! Thank you all for the messages.’

Boss Zinedine Zidane now has limited options on the wing given Eden Hazard’s injury struggles

With Gareth Bale and Reinier Jesus out on loan at Tottenham and Borussia Dortmund respectively, Zidane’s options on the wing are limited.

Moreover, record signing Eden Hazard is struggling with injury again after just six appearances and two goals in all competitions this season.

Asensio, Lucas Vazquez, and Rodrygo’s compatriot Vinicius Junior now have a chance to step up, while Sportsmail revealed on Monday that Villarreal loanee Takefusa Kubo could return.

Real Madrid return to LaLiga on Wednesday, travelling to relegation-threatened Elche lying second in the table, level on points with rivals Atletico Madrid but having played two games more.
