Real Madrid announced Dani Carvajal has been diagnosed with a viral infection affecting the membrane enclosing the heart.
It’s not clear how long he will be out for, nor how serious the condition is.
“Following tests carried out on Dani Carvajal, he has been diagnosed with a viral pericardium infection,” read a statement.
“His recovery will continue to be assessed.”
The symptoms of pericarditis can be similar to a heart attack when particularly serious, but more often are represented by the sudden onset of sharp chest pain.
Dani Carvajal only recently signed a new contract with Real Madrid to June 2022.
