Real Madrid have confirmed that young midfielder Arda Guler has undergone arthroscopic knee surgery.

Real Madrid signed the 18-year-old attacking midfielder from Turkish side Fenerbahce over the summer, beating Barcelona to the signing of the youngster.

Arda Guler is expected to grow into a top player in the near future, but got injured during pre-season.

The teenager suffered a knee injury during pre-season training with his new club in the USA prior to the pre-season game against AC Milan.

Guler didn’t get to feature in any of the pre-season games for the Los Blancos.

Real Madrid have confirmed that Guler underwent surgery on Monday.

“Our player Arda Guler underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee today under the supervision of the Real Madrid Medical Services,” a club statement reads.

“Guler will begin his recovery process in the next few days.”
