It was a bad news for the Barcelona family on Sunday, as Gavi suffered a nasty injury.

The 19-year-old tore his anterior cruciate ligament while playing for Spain on Sunday, and has been ruled out for the rest of the season.

Real Madrid president Florentino Pérez has sent Gavi a letter wishing him well after the Barcelona midfielder was ruled out for the rest of the season, a source told ESPN.

Pérez sent the letter in the name of the club, offering Madrid’s full support after Gavi suffered the season-ending injury.

It wasn’t only Pérez who sent his goodwill, but some members of the Real Madrid team.

Striker Joselu said Spain’s 3-1 win over Georgia, “tasted like a defeat” after news of Gavi’s injury.

“You are a fantastic kid and you’re going to come through this with bravery and courage — we are all supporting you,” he wrote.

“[Club] rivals and [international] teammates, but above all, people,” Carvajal said. “You will come back much stronger, my friend.”
