Marco Asensio might miss the entirety of the upcoming season with a possible torn ACL sustained during the Arsenal friendly.
The forward got injured barely five minutes after he scored the equaliser in Real Madrid 4-3 penalty shootout win this morning.
A deal taking Dani Ceballos to Arsenal has reportedly been agreed by all the parties involved but the injury to Asensio may have negative impact on the move according to Zinedine Zidane.
“There’s still nothing official yet. The club is working on it and we’ll see in the next few days”.
While his counterpart Unai Emery is hopeful all go as plan: “I don’t know. Our target also was not to take injuries in that match & they maybe have with Asensio. It [could be] bad news, for them & also for us. I don’t know if it can change something.”
