Real Madrid defender Ferland Mendy is likely to miss the rest of the season after suffering from severe bouts of tibial periostitis – also known as shin splints.

Mendy missed Sunday’s 2-2 draw against Sevilla through injury and according to Goal, will miss the final three fixtures with Los Blancos aiming to defend their title.

“After the tests carried out today on our player Ferland Mendy by the Real Madrid Medical Services, he has been diagnosed with tibial periostitis,” read an official statement.

This injury comes as a major blow to Real Madrid, Dani Carvajal, Lucas Vázquez, Sergio Ramos, Raphaël Varane, Marcelo and Álvaro Odriozola all currently absent.

The same report states that his Euro 2020 involvement could also be at risk, with severe cases of tibial periostitis often taking three to six weeks to heal.
