Real Madrid winger Jese Rodriguez travels to Germany to undergo treatment for his torn cruciate knee ligament.

Real Madrid winger Jese Rodriguez is currently on course for Germany, where he will undergo treatment for his torn cruciate knee ligament.

The Spanish Under-21 international suffered the serious knee injury in the early stages of his side's 3-1 win over Schalke 04 in the second leg of their last-16 clash in the Champions League on Tuesday.

Subsequent scans revealed the extent of the damage and this afternoon, the attacker boarded a plane from Madrid alongside his agent.

According to reports in Spain, Ulrich Boenisch – the same surgeon that treated Madrid teammate Sami Khedira - will operate on the injury.

It is understood that the surgery will take place on Thursday.
