The 28-year-old Spain international already underwent surgery on Tuesday and will not play again this season, Bayern said, adding injured keeper Manuel Neuer and his replacement Sven Ulreich were also out for the remainder of the campaign.

Bayern have, however, already secured their fifth consecutive Bundesliga title more than a week ago.
