Real Madrid forward Jese has undergone "satisfactory" surgery on the knee ligament injury that has brought a premature end to his breakthrough season at the Bernabeu.

The 21-year-old tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee early in Madrid's 3-1 Champions League victory over Schalke on Tuesday night, putting a dampener on their progression to the quarter-finals as they completed a 9-2 aggregate triumph.

Jese travelled to Augsburg in Germany on Wednesday to undergo surgery at the clinic of knee specialist Dr Ulrich Boenisch and is expected to return to Madrid in the coming days.
