Juventus have been handed a huge setback with reports suggesting that Weston McKennie has suffered a double fracture to his left foot.
McKennie, 23, was withdrawn in the 81st minute of the Old Lady’s last-16 first leg against Villarreal, with the United States international requiring assistance as he hobbled off the pitch.
Now, Fabrizio Romano reports that the midfielder has fractured his second and third metatarsals, in a serious blow to the Italian giants.

It will likely result in a lengthy spell on the sidelines for the 23-year-old, who has been one of the few bright sparks in the centre of the park in recent seasons, with Sky Sport Italia suggesting that he could be out for two months.
McKennie has made 28 appearances for the Turin outfit this season, contributing four goals under returning boss Max Allegri.
The Bianconeri are already without several key players due to injury, with Paolo Dybala, Federico Chiesa, Daniele Rugani, Giorgio Chiellini and Federico Bernardeschi all unavailable for the trip to Spain.

McKennie’s performances for Juventus have seen him linked with a move to England. Last month, reports in Italy claimed that the Old Lady rejected a bid from Spurs that was below their £25million asking price for the American.
Relegation-threatened Leeds had also been linked with a swoop for the 23-year-old, but no transfer materialised for Marcelo Bielsa’s side.
