While the focus has already tilted toward the summer transfer window and the forthcoming season, it is important not to devalue Real Madrid’s achievements from last campaign.

The Merengues topped Barcelona in domestic competitions to acquire La Liga and the Spanish Super Cup.

But most impressive was their run in the UEFA Champions League, as Real Madrid defeated several heavyweights to eventually clinch the trophy, making this a historic 15th European title.

Zubimendi acknowledges Real Madrid as the cream of the crop

Real Sociedad midfielder Martin Zubimendi has been making waves with the Basque side, recognized for his unique abilities as a defensive midfielder.

When asked to name the best team in the world, Zubimendi did not hesitate to point out Real Madrid, highlighting their success in the Champions League as the definitive proof of their superiority.

The winner of the Champions League is the best team, Real Madrid. Winning it determines who is the best, and Real Madrid has proven that it is the best,” the midfielder claimed in an interview with OK Diario.

In the world of football, winning the Champions League is widely regarded as the ultimate measure of a team’s prowess. No team exemplifies this better than Real Madrid.

Success on the European stage also greatly helps allure top players worldwide, with Los Blancos’ recent title helping earn Zubimendi’s admiration too.

Interestingly, league rivals Barcelona have tailed Zubimendi for a couple of years, but their financial predicament makes it unlikely for them to activate his €60 million release clause.

As such, if Real Madrid intends to bolster their midfield ranks, a move for one of Spain’s best midfielders could one day materialize.

However, for now, Real Madrid are well covered at the base of midfield, with Aurelien Tchouameni more than suited for the defensive midfield role.

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.

Mario Gila picks up fresh injury

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.
