France’s head coach, Didier Deschamps, has provided an update on Kylian Mbappé’s condition following an injury he sustained. 

Deschamps mentioned that Mbappe is showing some signs of improvement, but they will need to monitor him closely each day to determine when he might be able to return to play in the Euro 2024 tournament.

Deschamps explained that further tests are scheduled for Wednesday to assess how Mbappe is recovering. 

He highlighted that the injury was quite severe, and although surgery is not immediately necessary, it might be required in the future. 

“This Wednesday there will be more tests to see his evolution. It was a major shock. After the tests, the medical staff did everything necessary to reduce it as much as possible,” said Deschamps as quoted by Mundo Deportivo 

“Even if there is no immediate surgery, he will have to do it,” he added.

What happened to Mbappe?

There is considerable doubt about his participation in France’s next game against the Netherlands on Friday and the following match against Poland.

Despite these concerns, Mbappe is expected to stay with the team and continue his efforts to return to play, potentially using a protective mask. 

The French Football Federation had issued a statement indicating that Mbappe’s status is uncertain. 

Will Mbappe play in Euro 2024?

The medical team, in coordination with Deschamps, has decided to proceed cautiously. They are considering several factors: the severity of his nose injury, the time required to create a protective mask, and the period needed for him to recover from the trauma.

He is almost certainly ruled out against the Netherlands and if France secure a win against the Dutch and ensure their qualification for the round of 16, Deschamps might decide to rest Mbappe against Poland too.

This would allow Mbappe to heal fully and be in the best possible condition for the knockout stages of the tournament.

Just in: Real Madrid’s defensive target picks up fresh injury

Real Madrid are in active negotiations with LOSC Lille for the transfer of Leny Yoro. After weeks of impasse, the club appear to have made some ground in the race to sign the Frenchman.

However, should the Yoro deal fall through in the coming weeks, Real Madrid have identified Lazio’s Mario Gila as the ideal alternative.

Formerly of RM Castilla, Gila currently plies his trade for Lazio and has emerged as a key defensive lynchpin for the Italian outfit, impressing onlookers with his technique and discipline.

However, in a major development, it appears Mario Gila has picked up a fresh injury during training, reports Diario AS.

In the pre-season camp at Auronzo di Cadore, Gila appears to have fractured his left foot and could be out for several weeks.

Lazio confirmed the defender’s injury, stating, “Mario Gila underwent clinical and instrumental examinations which revealed a fracture of the phalanx of the big toe of his left foot, suffered during training.”

Gila has started taking the appropriate treatment and the extent of his injury will be known soon. However, as things stand, the defender could be out for at least the next few weeks.

What does this mean for Real Madrid?

Mario Gila’s fresh injury setback is sure to dwindle any hopes of a potential return to Real Madrid this summer.

In any case, Gila’s chances of returning to Santiago Bernabeu were slim given that Real Madrid have finally made some ground in the deal to sign top defensive target Leny Yoro.

Los Blancos, though, would have liked having someone like Gila available as an alternative, especially with LOSC Lille still demanding a fortune for the Frenchman.

Unfortunately, that might not be an option anymore, no thanks to Gila’s injury. The club, though, will keep a close eye on the Spaniard’s injury situation, knowing he could return to fitness before the end of the summer break.
