Real Madrid's club doctors have spent the weekend ensuring that there has been no lasting damage to Cristiano Ronaldo's knee after the tackle he received during the game against Juventus.
The Spanish giants were keen to make sure that their €94million investment had not suffered anything other than severe bruising after a challenge from Zdenek Grygera.
In the last few minutes of the Peace Cup semi final in Seville, the Czech defender leapt into a challenge with Ronaldo and planted his studs into the forward's right knee.
It was a tackle worthy of a red card and the Portuguese star looked to be in considerable pain, but he returned to the pitch after lengthy treatment.
Despite that, Madrid doctors wanted to ensure that there were no underlying problems that could worsen and have run a series of tests to determine that nothing is wrong.
Last summer, Wesley Sneijder joined the club and in pre-season he snapped a ligament in his knee after a high tackle by Abou Diaby in the Emirates Cup.
