Journalist Melchor Ruiz has confirmed via COPE that Kylian Mbappe will undergo surgery only after his official presentation at Real Madrid. 

The journalist noted that this surgery is crucial for the French superstar because it will help him breathe properly after suffering a broken nose.

It must be noted that Mbappe’s nose injury happened during France’s victory over Austria last month. The injury was severe enough that the forward had to miss the next game against the Netherlands. 

Initially, it was believed that the injury might not be too serious, as earlier reports suggested only a strong deviation in his nose, rather than a full fracture.

However, further examinations revealed that while Mbappe could continue playing for now, surgery would still be necessary and is planned to take place after the UEFA Euro 2024 tournament concludes.

Mbappe’s presentation depends on France’s journey

There is an interesting twist regarding Mbappe’s presentation as a new player for Real Madrid. 

If France advance to the final stages of the Euro 2024, it could delay his surgery until later in July.

This potential delay creates a tight schedule for his recovery. Medical professionals indicate that a standard recovery period for a nose fracture is about three weeks, but a complete recovery could take four to five weeks.

If the surgery occurs in the latter half of July, Mbappe would need approximately a month to fully recover, just in time for the UEFA Super Cup match

What if France are eliminated early?

However, if France are eliminated from the competition earlier, Mbappe’s presentation at Real Madrid could be scheduled for July 16. This date is chosen because the Santiago Bernabeu stadium will be hosting concerts from July 8 to 14.

Lastly, it is understood that the surgery Mbappe needs is not for cosmetic reasons but is necessary to ensure he can breathe properly. 

An ENT (Ear, Nose, and Throat) specialist will perform the procedure and given the importance of his health and recovery, the presentation as a Real Madrid player will take place first, followed by the surgery.

With the 2024/25 season only a month away, UEFA have released the latest coefficient rankings for clubs and Real Madrid occupy the second position in the standings, behind Manchester City.

The new season removes the oldest of the five seasons that count towards the rankings from the overall tally and instead adds the one yet to be played, which is currently at zero because none of the big teams have played yet.

And, as like last year, Real Madrid continue to be in the second position behind Manchester City despite having won the UEFA Champions League in the campaign gone by.

With the elimination of points from the 2019/20 season, the ranking is altered to give value to the latest campaigns, but even so, Real Madrid are still unable to overtake City.

Pep Guardiola’s side have 123,000 points to Real Madrid’s 119,000 while Bayern Munich sit third with 108,000 points. Liverpool take up the fourth position.

Real Madrid have won two Champions League titles to Manchester City’s one in the last five years.

But Guardiola’s side have managed to reach at least the semi-finals, as well as two finals, in all the editions that count towards the current ranking. That has allowed them to rack up a considerable number of points and still lead the standings.

Meanwhile, Real Madrid’s arch-rivals, Barcelona have dropped to the 18th position in the standings while Atletico Madrid are just a place above them in the 17th spot.
