Real Madrid's Ferland Mendy Suffers Injury Blow

Real Madrid defender Ferland Mendy is expected to be out of action for three to four weeks with a thigh problem, the club has confirmed.

The left-back has been diagnosed with a muscular lesion that will keep him on the sidelines for the opening weeks of the new La Liga campaign.

French international Mendy, who made a big money move to Santiago Bernabeu in June from Ligue 1 outfit Lyon, will likely miss his side's first game against Celta Vigo.

He has featured in both of Madrid's International Champions Cup pre-season encounters so far, as a substitute in their defeat to Bayern Munich and starting in their penalty shoot-out victory against Arsenal.

Los Blancos have already been struck by injury issues, with Marco Asensio suffering an anterior cruciate ligament injury against the Gunners after scoring to put his side on even terms on the night.
