Real Madrid have published a medical report about Luka Jovic, who suffers a fracture on his right foot and will be out for at least the next 6 weeks.

After the tests carried out today on our player Luka Jović by the Real Madrid Medical Services, he has been diagnosed with an extra-articular fracture in the calcaneus bone of his right foot. Pending evolution.

It's a mystery how Jovic picked up this injury considering that every single Real Madrid player has been in quarantine for the last two months. While they have been doing some exercise at home, a foot fracture is strange considering the circumstances.

It hasn't been an easy season for Jovic, who lost his spot as Benzema's backup during the last few games before the postponement of the competition. Jovic is still very young and can turn things around, but it won't be easy for him to play until next season considering that he will miss the upcoming training camp, which could ultimately hurt his chances of being a relevant player for Real Madrid any time soon.
