The forecast of the Real is that Miguel Angel Moyá He does not step on a pitch again until April, but he will not sign any goalkeeper without a team, a possibility always open even if it is out of the market. In the club there is full confidence in Gaizka Ayesa, the usual substitute for Alex Remiro, who has not yet made his debut in either First or Second Division and has played only nine meetings in Second B with Sanse, in which he conceded 6 goals. On April 2 he turns 20, he is from the Navarrese town of Ansoain, he measures 182 centimeters and they have great faith in his qualities and in his evolution in these months of training with the first team under Luis Llopis. If Alex Remiro is injured or is penalized, Ayesa will have to take the field, either at Old Trafford, in Valdebebas against Real Madrid or in the La Cartuja Cup final against Athletic.
And all this because Miguel Ángel Moyá will have to undergo surgery on Monday. La Real reported yesterday that the Balearic goalkeeper “suffers an injury to the external meniscus of his right knee. He will be operated on next Monday, February 8, by Dr. Mikel Sánchez, in Vitoria-Gasteiz ”. As MD reported Tuesday morning, the 36-year-old goalkeeper relapsed from his injury in a bad fall just 30 minutes into his first group training in two months. This happened 11 and a half hours after the winter transfer market closed.
Moyá, two months minimum
Medical sources consulted yesterday by MD, establish a recovery period of between two and four months for these meniscus injuries. Other doctors cite the possibility of a rehabilitation in six weeks if everything were very rough. Everything will depend on the intervention made on Monday. If it is a meniscectomy, which consists of trimming the piece of damaged meniscus, the term would be around two months. The option to have a suture is less likely but would entail a recovery of around four months. If you have affected cartilage it would be even higher.
Consequently, it cannot be ruled out that Moyá has said goodbye to the season and his journey at Real, with which he ends his contract this year. However, the club have ruled out the possibility of resorting to the market for goalkeepers who are without a team, which did not offer alternatives with too many guarantees. In this situation is, for example, Danijel Subasic, a 34-year-old Croat ex-Monaco, the most representative of an extensive list, but of goalkeepers with very little experience in the major European leagues.
Thus, Álex Remiro, who has played everything in the league, remains the only goalkeeper in the realistic first team.
