Real Madrid will have to cope without Xabi Alonso for up to three months, according to reports. 

The 31-year-old defensive-midfielder suffered a fractured metatarsal on Wednesday during training, and is expected to be out until at least November.

The clubs official website announced that 'X-rays taken by Real Madrid Sanitas medical services have revealed that Real Madrid’s player Xabi Alonso fractured the fifth metatarsal in his right foot today.'

Alonso's injury is likely to be a thorn in the side of Ancelotti's plans, with speculation mounting over the futures of Sami Khedira and Fabio Coentrao leaving new signing Asier Illarramendi as the only guaranteed holding midfielder- and even he is lacking match fitness.

The Spanish international has only recently returned to the Madrid first-team, having been forced into an extended leave after struggling with an on-going groin injury that forced him out of the Confederations Cup.
