Eden Hazard may be out of El Clasico and possibly until the new year after apparently being pictured on crutches at a team dinner.

Hazard limped out of the recent clash with PSG after a heavy challenge from fellow Belgian Thomas Meunier.

It was initially thought he would only miss about ten days.

That would mean he is in contention to return this weekend in the La Liga clash with Espanyol.

However, Real had their player’s Christmas party, and Hazard was pictured on crutches.

There has been no official update from the club on his recovery.

According to Marca, Zinedine Zidane fears his big summer signing will not only miss the huge El Clasico match with Barcelona but may even be out until 2020.
