And as the German champions defend their Bundesliga crown not to mention mounting a challenge in Europe, Ancelotti will be without one of his key players for potentially half a season.

According to reports from German outlet Bild, Manuel Neuer is set to be sidelined for 'several months' after suffering a suspected broken foot.

He pulled up in training with the player set to go further medical examinations though it's feared he'll have to go under the knife.

The Italian boss will be without Neuer's services for the league clash with Schalke on Tuesday night.

The 31-year-old stopper has been plagued with foot injuries. In March, he suffered a hairline fracture to his metatarsal. Though he returned in between the sticks after a minor operation.

He's once again done damage to his left foot.
