Sami Khedira has been ruled out for two months due to a thigh injury, Juventus have confirmed.
The midfielder has struggled with fitness for the past two seasons and this led to him leaving Madrid for Juventus on a free transfer after spending most of 2014-15 on the bench.
Khedira was stretchered off in the match against Marseille and will miss the first seven matches of the Serie A.
“Sami Khedira will be sidelined for approximately two months after medical examinations revealed a second-grade myotendinous tear of the rectus femoris muscle in his right thigh,” the Bianconeri said in a statement on their website on Monday.
“The German midfielder sustained the injury during Saturday’s pre-season friendly against Olympique Marseille at the Stade Velodrome.”
