The full-back fell awkwardly when challenging Franck Kessie during his side's 4-0 International Champions Cup thrashing at the hands of AC Milan in Shenzhen on Saturday.

Bernat was seen leaving the stadium on crutches and Bayern have since confirmed he will miss the rest of their pre-season tour after damaging ligaments.

"He can't continue the Audi Summer Tour and will fly back to Munich tomorrow [Sunday]. He'll undergo an examination on Monday," head coach Carlo Ancelotti said after the match.

Bernat made 18 appearances in the Bundesliga last season, scoring twice.
