Dutch midfielder Wesley Sneijder will miss three months with a sprained MCL, a boost of good news for a Real Madrid club that originally feared Sneijder would miss six months with at least a torn ACL. The improved prognosis is welcome news for a Real Madrid squad that was ready to press forward in search of a replacement.
With Cristiano Ronaldo sidelined with his own injury (he is recovering from ankle surgery), Real Madrid will feel less compelled to have to complete a purchase of Ronaldo because of Sneijder’s injury. If anything, Monday’s signing of Rafael Van Der Vaart should help cover for Sneijder’s absence.
What do you think Real Madrid should do now? Should the La Liga champions still sell Robino? Should Ramon Calderon break the bank to land Cristiano Ronaldo? Share your thoughts below.
