Mariano will be sick for several days due to angina, as announced by the club in a medical report late in the afternoon this Wednesday. The player “has undergone surgery today for tonsillitis, under the supervision of Real Madrid’s Medical Services,” reads the entity’s statement. The medical report does not specify how long he will be off and is limited to indicating that the striker “begins his recovery process from this moment.” A new health setback for the footballer, who in August could not be available for the Champions League match against City because he tested positive for coronavirus in the tests that the players passed before returning to training after the week of vacation they had after to conquer the League.
Tonsillitis involves a new problem that looms over Mariano’s situation in Madrid. The club has been looking for his exit throughout the market (he already tried last season), but the forward closes in band to leave if he does not find a club that improves his salary. He earns 4.5 million euros net as a Madrid player.
The player does not count for Zidane (last season he barely played 91 minutes spread over 7 games, although he scored in the Bernabéu Classic) and his form is not optimal either. He has spent most of the brief white preseason training alone on the grass or directly in the gym.
