Young Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane could be in danger of missing the Copa del Rey final after being forced to leave the field during his team’s 1-1 draw with Espanyol.
The 19-year-old, who has become an instrumental part of Jose Mourinho’s side, injured his right knee in a collision with Wakaso Mubarak in the 15th minute of the match at Cornella El Prat.
After receiving attention on the sidelines, the decision was quickly made to replace him with Xabi Alonso.
According to Cadena SER and Canal Plus, the Frenchman suffered an injury to the meniscus, which could see him face a lengthy spell on the sidelines.
