Real Madrid's Hamit Altintop set to undergo surgery on back problem

Real Madrid will possibly have to make do without the services of Hamit Altintop when the 2011-12 campaign kicks off, as the Turkey international is set to undergo surgery on a back problem.

A statement on the club's official website reads that Altintop will go under the knife on Monday June 27 in Germany to fix the problem.
