Luka Jović is set to miss the rest of the LaLiga season with a foot injury.

The Serbian striker has suffered a fracture in his foot, as confirmed by the club on Friday, and is expected to be sidelined for between 6-8 weeks. That will see the young forward miss Madrid’s return to training ahead of a possible return to league action, and most likely miss any matches if the season resumes as planned by LaLiga.

Jović, who broke quarantine rules when returning to Serbia after training and the season was put on hold by the Coronavirus outbreak, returned to Valdebebas on Wednesday to undergo tests for the virus along with the rest of his teammates.

While reports suggest no Madrid player posted a positive test, Jović will now be absent from training and matches due to his injury.
