Real Madrid striker Ruud van Nistelrooy is set to undergo surgery on his right ankle, the club confirmed on Wednesday.

The Holland international initially sustained the injury in the 2-0 defeat to Almeria on February 2 but continued to be hampered after returning to the side and limped out of the defeat to Getafe on February 24.

The 31-year-old, who has scored 16 goals this season, has flown to Amsterdam for the operation.
