Controversy ensued in Real Madrid’s defeat to Villarreal last night as Federico Valverde punched winger Alex Baena after the game.

The move was seen as a retribution to earlier comments Baena had made on Valverde’s son, who, at the time, was thought would not be born. Baena, though, has denied saying any of this in a recent social media post.

The incident was not mentioned in the referee’s official report after the game, so Valverde was not penalised. Villarreal, subsequently, did not file a report and left the matter in Baena’s hands, on whether or not he opts to launch an official complaint.

But according to Alberto Pereiro, Baena has now filed a complaint against Valverde for assault, after a series of speculations and theories over the incident.

While it is still too early to deduce what is going to happen with this case, there is no doubt that Valverde could find himself in trouble at a crucial juncture of the season.

MARCA reports that Baena has filed a complaint against Valverde to Police. So, the case would go through criminal proceedings, which would mean that the midfielder will not face any sporting sanctions.

This could spell a whole lot of trouble for Real Madrid, as Valverde has been one of the key performers for the team this season.

Real Madrid missed out on the signing of Leny Yoro after deciding not to match Manchester United’s offer for the 18-year-old defender.

With the French prodigy now on his way to the Premier League, Los Blancos are assessing their options before deciding whether to sign a new centre-back or not.

As things stand, the reigning champions of Spain and Europe seem to be leaning towards relying on their existing options rather than going into the market.

Jesus Vallejo unlikely to leave

As such, MARCA reports that the likelihood of Jesus Vallejo leaving the club have now significantly reduced.

Indeed, the 27-year-old out-of-favour defender now appears more and more likely to continue at Real Madrid beyond this summer.

Vallejo returned to the Santiago Bernabeu after finishing his loan stint at Granada during which he hardly played due to injury and fitness woes.

As such, reports suggested that Carlo Ancelotti & co. were not planning on counting on him next season, even though he was handed a new shirt number recently.

But with the Leny Yoro operation collapsing and Real Madrid not keen on recruiting anyone from the market at this point, the Spanish ace is now unlikely to leave the club.

With David Alaba still sidelined, Antonio Rudiger and Eder Militao will start the new season as the first-choice centre-back pairing and Vallejo will serve as the backup while Aurelien Tchouameni will also be an option.

Vallejo, for his part, wanted to stay put and see out his contract which expires in 2025. And, as things stand, it appears that the player will get his wish.
