Lucas Vazquez has suffered a fractured big toe in his left foot, Real Madrid has confirmed.

Vazquez sustained the injury when he dropped a weight during a gym session, according to reports in Spain.

Madrid, who hosts Real Sociedad on Saturday, has not specified a timeframe for his recovery.

The 28-year-old missed matches against Mallorca and Galatasaray in October due to a calf problem.
