Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos has undergone successful surgery to his left knee after a torn meniscus.
the club said in a statement. “Ramos will begin the recovery process in the next few days.
The 34-year-old had missed Real’s last two La Liga outings against Alaves and Levante with a torn meniscus,
as well as their Copa del Rey exit to third-tier side CD Alcoyano.
He returned to training after over two weeks out but decided to go under the knife after advice from the Real
medical staff to fix the issue and return to full fitness.
Reports in Spain on Saturday morning suggested he could be out for six to eight weeks, therefore missing
Real’s Champions League round-of-16 tie against Atalanta on February 24 and the Madrid derby on March 7.
Ramos’ contract at the Santiago Bernabéu runs out in the summer and there is no indication he is due to sign
a new deal just yet, prompting speculation over his next move.
