In what could be a huge blow for Real Madrid, Miguel Angel Diaz of COPE is reporting that key superstar and first-choice goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has suffered a serious injury in training today.

The 31-year-old has been a permanent fixture between the sticks since his arrival at the club in 2018 and has been crucial to the success that Los Blancos have achieved during that period.

There have been some minor fitness issues along the way, but the training injury he sustained today could be a potentially serious one as per the report.

Indeed, it is being suspected that Courtois might have injured his ACL which could mean a significant spell on the sidelines.

The report adds that the Belgian goalkeeper was in tears when he left the training session and was carried off on a stretcher.

This development comes as a huge blow for Real Madrid with the season just a couple of days away from starting.

Andriy Lunin has served as a backup for the Merengues, but the club are not entirely convinced by the Ukrainian and had even been looking to offload him this summer.

That, however, is likely to change now in light of Courtois’ injury and depending upon how long the Belgian could be sidelined, Real Madrid could look for another proven option in the market, if it is indeed an ACL injury that he has sustained.

Tests are being carried out and update on the nature of the Belgian’s injury and the potential recovery time should emerge soon.

Real Madrid usurped the top spot in the La Liga standings from arch-rivals FC Barcelona as they defeated Girona 3-0 away at Estadi Montilivi.

It was a fine performance from Carlo Ancelotti’s men against Michel’s side, with the returning Jude Bellingham leading the way for his team.

After being benched against Las Palmas in midweek, the England international returned to the starting XI today and turned in yet another Man of the Match display for Real Madrid.

It all started with Joselu opening the scoring just 15 minutes into the game, with Bellingham assisting the goal with a special, outside-of-the-boot pass from the left side, bringing back memories of Luka Modric doing something similar a few years ago.

Talking about that special pass, Bellingham said: “I’ve been watching Luka every day for months. I just want to be creative. It took the pressure off us at the start.”

On the match and the result, the 20-year-old stated that it was a good day across the board for Real Madrid, as he said: “It was an important win. They were doing very well. We made a statement of intent to La Liga. Three goals, a clean sheet….”

It has been a truly remarkable start to life at Real Madrid for Bellingham and expressing how he feels to play for the Merengues, he exclaimed:

“I feel very good. I have freedom of movement and I’m enjoying football. Whenever I put on this shirt I always try to do my best.”

Apart from assisting Joselu’s opener, Bellingham also got his name on the scoresheet in the second period. Talking about his goal, the wonderkid said:

“It wasn’t a very good finish. I could have scored some more, but the important thing is the victory.”

The strike meant that Bellingham now has seven goals and two assists across all competitions for Real Madrid. Reflecting on his brilliant start, he said:

“It’s a good start, not bad. I would like to continue on this path and I won’t always score or assist, but I will always give my best.”

Bellingham’s celebration has been a huge hit, with kids in school, players from other clubs, and many others mimicking it. When asked how his special celebration originated, he replied:

“I don’t know where I first celebrated. I think it was with Birmingham. It’s an inspiration to see kids doing it in schools. It’s a wonderful thing.”
