"Isco has been diagnosed with a muscular injury in the right femoral biceps. His recovery will continue to be monitored," Spanish powerhouse Real Madrid said in a statement.

The 27-year-old Spain international sustained the injury during Madrid's team practice earlier in the day, as coach Zinedine Zidane's squad is getting for the upcoming La Liga clash at Villarreal, which Isco will miss, Efe news reported.

Madrid's 'sickroom' also includes Eden Hazard, Rodrygo, Marco Asensio, Brahim Díaz and James Rodriguez.

In related news, French centre-back Raphael Varane did not train with his teammates during Wednesday's second session as he worked out alone inside the gym, the Spanish club said.
