Real Madrid pair Danilo and Keylor Navas went under the knife on Thursday for surgery on right and left heel injuries, respectively.

The LaLiga club released medical reports on both players following their operations, confirming that the procedures had been carried out successfully.

Danilo out for a month

Defender Danilo, who joined Real last summer and made 31 appearances in all competitions in his maiden season at the Bernabéu, faces a month out.

The 24-year-old has been troubled by foot discomfort since suffering a plantar fascia tear on international duty last September.

He will be ready to link up with the first-team squad for the start of Real's preparations for the coming campaign on 15 July.

Five to six weeks for Keylor

Meanwhile, Costa Rica goalkeeper Navas - whose issue saw him miss this month's Copa América in the United States - is set for longer on the sidelines.

The custodian is expected to be back in five to six weeks, and could well begin Los Blancos' pre-season away from the group as he completes his recovery.
