Toni Kroos looks likely to miss the start of the new LaLiga season.

The Real Madrid midfielder has confirmed he has been suffering with a pubic bone issue. Madrid confirmed their player had been diagnosed with a pubalgia – a strain or tear of the soft tissue in the groin.

The 31-year-old took to Twitter to reveal that he has been suffering with the problem.

“After several month (sic.) of problems on my pubic bone I think it’s time to give it a rest and work on it to be well prepared for a long season. Back asap as always,” he tweeted.

Kroos has proven himself to be a durable member of the Madrid squad and has only missed 29 games through injury across seven seasons since his arrival at the Santiago Bernabéu from Bayern Munich in 2014.
