Courtois, 31, is said to have been in absolute agony after injuring his knee.

According to Cadena Cope, the former Chelsea keeper was “in tears” as he left the pitch.

Real confirmed the Belgian’s injury in a statement this afternoon and revealed their No.1 had ruptured his ACL.

It read: “After the tests carried out on our player Thibaut Courtois, he’s been diagnosed with a rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament of his left knee.

“The player will undergo surgery in the coming days.”

Footie fans were quick to react to the news of Courtois being crocked, with one tweeting: “Sad news, Speedy recovery.”

Another said: “Wow, speedy recovery.”

And another said: “Wishing him a speedy recovery.”

Courtois’ injury could force Real boss Carlo Ancelotti to dip into the transfer marketGetty

One remarked: “One of the greatest.”

Courtois’ injury may force Real chief Carlo Ancelotti to dip into the transfer market.

That is provided he doesn’t think back-up goalkeeper Andriy Lunin is up to the task.

And if he wants to save money on a transfer fee, the Italian could move for the out-of-work David de Gea.

The Spaniard is a free agent following the expiration of his contract with Manchester United in June.

And footie fans were quick to suggest Ancelotti swoop for the Spain international.

One tweeted: “It’s time for De Gea.”

Another said: “David De Gea said let me get revenge for the fax machine and bang this juju.

“They’re deffo signing him.”

And another said: “David De Gea has never been more excited in his life.”

One remarked: “De gea is available for free.

“I’m sure Madrid fans would be happy to have such a gem.”

Real kick off their La Liga campaign on Saturday night with a trip to the Basque country to take on Athletic Bilbao.
