BARCELONA:  Real Madrid midfielder James Rodriguez will require surgery on a broken bone in his foot and is expected to be out for two months, the club confirmed on Thursday.

"A fracture of the fifth metatarsal of his right foot has been detected. The player will have surgery in the following hours," read a statement on the Real website.
