The 23-year-old is almost certain to miss Saturday's LaLiga game at Real Sociedad after suffering a knock in Madrid's draw at Man City.

Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has been handed a further fitness headache following Los Blancos' Champions League semi-final first leg at Man City on Tuesday night.

Zidane has already seen Cristiano Ronaldo (thigh) and Karim Benzema (hip) ruled out of Saturday's LaLiga clash at Real Sociedad, with both major doubts for the return with City three days later.

And Jesé Rodríguez, who replaced Benzema at half-time at the Etihad, is also struggling after picking up a shin knock in the 0-0 stalemate.

Real's medical staff expect the academy graduate to sit out the trip to Anoeta, allowing him to return to 100% fitness ahead of next Wednesday's crunch European date at the Bernabéu.

With the involvement of Cristiano and Benzema far from guaranteed, Rodríguez's availability for the visit of Manuel Pellegrini's men takes on added importance.
