Julio dos Santos was dealt a heavy blow on Tuesday when the 23-year-old midfielder sustained a broken fibula during final training for Bayern's DFB German Cup Round of 16 trip to Aachen on Tuesday. Club chief medic Dr. Hans-Wilhelm Müller-Wohlfahrt confirmed the fractured right leg, with an associated ankle ligament tear, after a thorough examination.

Professor Ludwig Seebauer preformed immediate surgery to repair the Paraguay international's fractured leg at Bogenhausen hospital on Tuesday evening. Dos Santos would be sidelined for ten weeks, Müller-Wohlfahrt explained.

The injury represents a massive setback for the player, who has struggled to make the breakthrough in Munich a year ago. On Monday, the midfielder agreed a loan deal taking him to Bundesliga rivals VfL Wolfsburg with the intention of gaining match practice in the second half of the season. Bayern director Karl Hopfner made contact with Wolfsburg officials immediately news of the serious injury broke.
