While Real Madrid are obligated to take a break from racking up wins and decorating their trophy cabinet with more silverware, their players continue to make them proud on the international stage.

Indeed, Los Blancos have been well represented in both the Euros and Copa America this summer, with two players especially bringing pride to the club with man-of-the-match displays: Jude Bellingham and Arda Guler.

Most recently, England failed to acquire a win against Denmark, but their opening game against Serbia saw Bellingham score the match-winning goal.

The Englishman’s maturity in midfield, ability to burst forward instantly and offer solutions in tight situations aided Real Madrid considerably and is now coming to light with England.

Bellingham earns high praise

Now, Bayern Munich and Manchester United icon Owen Hargreaves has come out to heap praise on Bellingham, acknowledging his versatile skill set and deeming him an incredibly rare talent.

“Jude is very special. I don’t think I have ever seen a player like this before. His talent is very special, and his mentality is even more so.

This is very special and rare. He can play in many positions, and score. He defends and passes. He does everything,” he commented (h/t RM4 Arab).

Furthermore, Hargreaves highlighted Bellingham’s adaptability and immediate impact at Real Madrid: “I’ve never seen a player go to Real Madrid and perform like this and play in a position that’s not his. Sometimes it’s 10, sometimes it’s 9.

“And he plays in both at an exceptional level. He walked into the locker room with Modric, Kroos and Carvajal, and he was ready right away.

It usually takes time for young guys to reach a level like that, they have to acclimatize, he came and learned. I think that’s an impressive talent.”

England would be vying to bring the elusive Euros trophy home once and for all. Bellingham, as the midfield’s lynchpin, is anticipated to play an important role in their quest for glory.

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.

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.
