Ahead of the 2017/18 season, Real Madrid are to overhaul their first-team medical staff, with chief doctor Jesus Olmo among those to leave the club.
The decision has been provoked by Olmo’s decision to undertake some new external projects, say club sources.
As such, Los Blancos decided that now was an opportune time to make a change in the department, one which has come in for criticism in the past.
Among the other members of the medical team who are likely to leave is surgeon Mikel Aramberri, who arrived at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu in 2015.
As for replacements, several names have been suggested, including the current Castilla doctor, who Zinedine Zidane is believed to be ready to endorse.
