Portugal fear broken leg for Guerreiro
Portugal fear Raphael Guerreiro suffered a broken leg in the Confederations Cup victory over Russia. Guerreiro limped off the pitch after 66 minutes of his side's 1-0 victory on Wednesday. And Portugal boss Fernando Santos is worried the Borussia Dortmund star, who had earlier set up Cristiano Ronaldo's headed winner, has suffered a serious injury.
"Raphael went to hospital," he said. "We think he might have fractured his leg, unfortunately. He is a top quality player and this might have an impact on the beginning of his new season as well. We are sad about that, but let's see what the exam results tell us. I hope they are not as serious as we believe they are at the moment, I hope not."
Muller undergoes operation on right thumb
Bayern Munich attacker Thomas Muller has undergone minor surgery on his right thumb. Rested by Germany coach Joachim Low for the upcoming Confederations Cup in Russia, Muller is expected to be fit for July 1, when Bayern return to training looking to secure a sixth consecutive Bundesliga title next season.
However, the news is less positive regarding Bayern's record signing Martinez. The 28-year-old broke his collarbone hiking in Spain last month and needed an operation shortly afterwards. He is likely to miss the start of preseason and will also sit out Bayern's summer tour of China and Singapore. Goalkeeper Manuel Neuer, who is recovering from a toe fracture, will also miss the tour to Asia next month.
Reus set for six months out
Marco Reus is facing six months out with cruciate ligament damage picked up in Borussia Dortmund's 2-1 DFB Pokal final win against Eintracht Frankfurt, according to a report in Bild. Reus, 27, went off at half-time with the injury and is facing an extended spell on the sidelines. The Germany international had already missed much of Dortmund's season through injury.
Varela to miss Cup final due to tattoo
Manchester United loanee Guillermo Varela is ending his spell at Eintract Frankfurt in disgrace, after a tattoo-induced injury ruled him out of the German cup final. Varela was due to face Borussia Dortmund on Saturday but will instead by on his way back to Manchester United after the German club suspended him. Frankfurt had been considering extending his loan but instead confirmed that the Uruguayan right-back's time at the club is "over".
Boateng sustains muscle injury
Jerome Boateng sustained an injury in Bayern's 4-1 victory over Freiburg and had to be subbed off after 11 minutes. Instead of being presented with the championship shield, the 28-year-old centre-back underwent an MRI which revealed a muscle injury to his right thigh. Boateng will definitely be fit for the start of pre-season.
Weigl undergoes successful ankle surgery
Borussia Dortmund midfielder Julian Weigl has successfully undergone surgery on the ankle injury he sustained in last Saturday's away match against Augsburg. The operation was conducted by Dr. Karl-Heinz Bauer at the Klinikum Westfalen hospital in Dortmund-Brackel. The doctors believe Weigl will now be out of action for the next three to four months.
Weigl breaks ankle, out 3-4 months
Borussia Dortmund midfielder Julian Weigl broke his ankle in Saturday's 1-1 Bundesliga draw at Augsburg and will be out for about four months. The 21-year-old Germany international had to be carried off on a stretcher after 20 minutes following his horrific injury when his foot got caught in the grass and snapped back.
"He told me he felt it immediately," said Dortmund coach Thomas Tuchel. "It cracked in there. The first diagnosis is that it is a broken ankle. This is a bitter loss for us which we cannot compensate one-to-one currently. We will try to find a solution for the last two matches of the season which will be very difficult."
Bartra returns to Dortmund training
Marc Bartra returned to full training with Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday, a month after he was injured in a bomb attack on the team bus. The 26-year-old had to undergo surgery on his right hand after it was damaged in the attack ahead of their Champions League match with Monaco on April 11. Bartra was the only player to receive serious injuries in the blast. It is not known if the Spain international centre-back will feature in Saturday's game against Augsburg.
Martinez breaks collarbone
Bayern Munich defender Javi Martinez has broken his collarbone hiking in the mountains and will miss the Bundesliga champions' final two games of the season. Martinez returned to Munich after the incident and underwent surgery on Tuesday.
Both Bayern's first-choice goalkeepers, Manuel Neuer and Sven Ulreich, have also been ruled out for the remainder of the season through injury, meaning 36-year-old No. 3 Tom Starke is set to stand in.
Ulreich joins Neuer with season-ending injury
Bayern Munich have been hit by a further goalkeeping injury blow as Sven Ulreich, like Manuel Neuer, has been ruled out for the rest of the season. Carlo Ancelotti's men have already clinched the Bundesliga title and will see out the rest of the campaign with third-choice goalkeeper Tom Starke. Ulreich will miss the remainder of 2016-17 following an injury to his elbow in training.
Bartra returns to training
Marc Bartra returned to training with Borussia Dortmund on Thursday, getting back into action for the first time since being injured in the attack on the Borussia Dortmund team bus. Bartra had to undergo surgery on his right arm and was originally ruled out for at least a month. It hasn't yet been a month, but the 26-year-old is already back at work and there's reason to believe he can even play in a match again before the season ends.
Schoepf to miss rest of season
Schalke midfielder Alessandro Schoepf will miss the rest of the season with a knee injury. The 23-year-old has a partial rupture to the anterior ligament in his right knee, sustained in a collision with Bayer Leverkusen defender Benjamin Henrichs on Friday. The Austria international won't need an operation but he will be out for about four months.
