Real Madrid’s long list of injuries leaves Carlo Ancelotti without important players both in the short and the long term. The management, however, so not believe in making a signing in the winter and thus open the door for players from the academy to come through.

It has not been easy for players in the Castilla to make it big with the first team in recent times. Daniel Carvajal and Lucas Vazquez are amongst the only candidates to boast of such a feat.

The up-and-coming generation of stars, however, features some serious quality in the likes of Nico Paz and Gonzalo Garcia amongst others. Needless to say, the future for the academy stars looks bright.

Real Madrid Castilla manager Raul Gonzalez spoke to the media after his team’s recent match against Algeciras and acknowledged the fact that his players could well see promotions in the coming months.

“I see the nearby option for Ancelotti to pull those of the subsidiary. Depending on the circumstances and each moment, he will decide what is best for the first team.”

“Communication is daily and when the first team returns to train, he will decide who can help and for me, it will be a joy that they go up to the first team. I will have to call players up from Madrid C and the others will also be happy,” he added.

The club legend stressed the fact that while the decision-making did not lie in his hands, the opportunities would come for the youngsters.

“The decision of who the players are is Ancelotti’s and being Castilla players they must always be prepared, they have always given good performance and that is our job.”

After a long wait, the European Championship is finally underway, with one of the tournament’s favourites Germany opening the competition with an emphatic 5-1 win over Scotland.

Another favourite to win the Euro 2024 is France, who will be in action on Monday as they take on Austria. One of the talking points heading into this game is the fitness of Real Madrid superstar, Aurelien Tchouameni.

The Frenchman had picked up an injury late into the 2023/24 campaign, which notably saw him miss the UEFA Champions League final. It was thought that the midfielder would miss a chunk of the Euros as well.

Tchouameni available for France’s group stage games

However, it appears Tchouameni has made a remarkable recovery and could be in contention to feature in France’s group-stage matches.

That is according to AS, which suggests that coach Didier Deschamps is counting on the midfielder to become available sooner rather than later.

Although Tchouameni has been ruled out for France’s opening game against Austria, the player is hoping to feature in the two remaining group matches against Poland and the Netherlands.

Up until this point, Tchouameni completed individual training sessions with France’s physical trainer. But recently, he was able to join the team’s training session ahead of the Austria game.

Tchouameni’s return could serve as a massive boost for France. Even though Les Bleus already have a stacked midfield unit, coach Deschamps is a huge admirer of Tchouameni and had backed him to get fit the moment he picked up an injury.

Deschamps, after all, did not opt to replace the Real Madrid star with another player.

France, of course, will have to proceed with caution, knowing the youngster has just recovered from his injury. But they can be hopeful of the player taking part as the tournament progresses.
