Dani Ceballos has become the latest casualty to the strenuous October schedule, with Real Madrid recently confirming his injury.

In an official statement, the club have stated that the midfielder has been diagnosed with an injury to the biceps femoris. The announcement comes in the aftermath of a knock picked up before the UEFA Champions League game against Shakhtar Donetsk.

The former Real Betis starlet was presumed to be out for a long period as initial suggestions over his hamstring injury were far from positive.

Although Real Madrid themselves have refused to offer an exact timeframe on his return, Ceballos’ injury is not thought to be as serious.

Recent reports suggest that the signs are positive, following an MRI scan. As such, the Spaniard could only miss out on a period of up to three to four weeks. In fact, he could return to action before the 2022 FIFA World Cup starts next month.

Ceballos is reportedly eyeing a return before the Girona game at the end of October. This could serve as a major relief for Real Madrid, who have limited depth in the squad and cannot afford to have players sidelined, especially at this crucial juncture.

Although Ceballos was far from a regular starter in the first team, his availability for the coming weeks could have been vital in Carlo Ancelotti’s bid to keep the troops fresh and avoid the risk of any further injuries.

In a recent report by Manu de Juan in AS, it has been revealed that Arda Guler is expected to play a significant role for Carlo Ancelotti’s Real Madrid next season, despite ongoing rumours connecting him to Liverpool

Currently, Carlo Ancelotti has five key players listed on the club’s official website: Kylian Mbappe, Vinícius Jr, Rodrygo, Brahim Diaz, and Endrick. However, Guler is an additional player who is likely to make a substantial impact next season.

In fact, it is said that the Turkish teenager is set to be Ancelotti’s versatile player for the 2024-25 season. His adaptability is a major asset as he can play in various positions, including as a central or attacking midfielder, a right winger, or even as a forward. 

His recent performance in the European Championship highlighted his capabilities, where he scored one of the tournament’s standout goals. This versatility makes him a valuable addition to the squad.

Ancelotti has clear plans for Guler

Ancelotti has indicated in the past that he sees Guler’s primary role as a forward. However, the coach is not hesitant to use him in a midfield role when needed.

This flexibility will be crucial, especially with changes in the team’s lineup. With Toni Kroos having left and Aurelien Tchouameni expected to play more as a centre-back, there will be a need for additional midfield options.

Despite his potential, there are concerns about Guler’s physicality and his ability to cover extensive ground on the field. Ancelotti has acknowledged these limitations, noting that Guler needs to improve his defensive positioning and overall physical endurance. 

The coach has mentioned that Guler is already working on these areas, aiming to overcome these challenges.

Meanwhile, during one of the celebrations at Cibeles, Ancelotti hinted at Guler’s increased involvement in the upcoming season. He described Guler as a “very interesting boy,” suggesting that the young player will have more opportunities to showcase his skills. 

This implies that fans can expect to see a lot more of Guler in action, making him a player to watch closely in the next season.
