A few days before the start of the Copa America, Lionel Messi had a fun interview with his nephew Tomás on the YouTube channel ‘Dispuestos a todo’.

The former Barcelona captain, who is currently in Atlanta in Argentina’s training camp for the Copa America 2024, made some interesting revelations during the interview.

One such revelation saw the 2022 FIFA World Cup winner bring up the name of former Real Madrid captain and club legend Sergio Ramos.

Indeed, when asked to name the player who made him the most angry and with whom he argued and fought the most on the pitch during his illustrious career, Messi did not hesitate before naming Sergio Ramos.

“With Sergio Ramos we fought a lot. He was the player I got most angry with. After that we were teammates, but we always clashed in the Clasicos. They were intense,” he explained, as quoted by Mundo Deportivo.

Messi and Ramos were at the centre of the El Clasico between Barcelona and Real Madrid rivalry when it was at its peak in the last decade.

The duo engaged in some hard-fought battles in Spain before ending up as teammates at PSG with both players leaving La Liga for Ligue 1 in the summer of 2021.

Both Ramos and Messi left PSG last year, with the former returning to Sevilla while the latter signed for Inter Miami in the MLS.

Now, with Ramos leaving Sevilla earlier this month, there may be a possibility that the pair reunite again at Inter Miami.

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.
