Eden Hazard has been ruled out of Real Madrid’s opening game against Celta Vigo on Saturday, due to a thigh injury.

Hazard, who moved from Chelsea in June for a fee that could rise to £130m, picked up the injury in training on Friday.

Tests conducted after the session revealed a muscular injury to the anterior part of his right thigh, according to Sky Sports.

Hazard was Real’s most high-profile signing in a busy summer for the 13-time European champions, who spent almost £300m on new recruits.

The former Blue forward scored once in seven pre-season matches for Los Blancos.

Real are also without fellow winger Marco Asensio for the start of the new campaign due to a serious knee injury, while Dani Carvajal is suspended.
