Real Madrid visited the Athletic Club in Sam Mames on Saturday, two days before the official start of the season, with the starting goalkeeper and a key player in the club’s recent success.

Courtois, 31, is facing the most significant injury of his playing career since suffering a torn meniscus in September 2015, from which he spent three months recovering.

However, in this case, a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee could keep him out for most or all of the season, depending on his evolution.

After confirming an injury, Real Madrid signed Ukrainian goalkeeper Andriy Lunin into the first team 21 days after the end of the transfer window; He has scored 19 goals in 17 games for the Whites.
