Malaga defender Weligton has successfully undergone an operation on his broken collarbone and is set to be sidelined for two months.

The 33-year-old Brazilian suffered the injury during the first half of Malaga's pre-season friendly against Aston Villa earlier this month following a collision with the Premier League club's striker Christian Benteke, who scored twice for the home side in a 3-2 win at Villa Park.

A statement on Malaga's official website: "Malaga's Weligton underwent surgery today at Barcelona's Hospital Quiron.

"The 'Malaguista' will remain at the Hospital Quiron in Barcelona for the next 24-48 hours. A recovery time of two months has been estimated by medics."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
