A contract extension last month served as a major boost for Dani Ceballos, who always wanted to continue at Real Madrid and become a first-team regular.

But his aspirations took a major blow when the midfielder picked up an early injury, four days into the pre-season training. The player suffered a thigh injury, which has ruled him out for the majority of the pre-season preparations and the start of the new campaign.

Shortly after the injury was confirmed by Real Madrid, Ceballos issued a message to the fans, stating he is keen on making a comeback as soon as possible.

“It’s time to stop for a few days due to an untimely injury. I have been preparing myself before pre-season even started with great enthusiasm. Sometimes these things happen. Now it’s time to recover and return as soon as possible and stronger,” Ceballos wrote on his social media channels.

Missing out on pre-season could indeed be a blow for Ceballos, who was hoping to impress Carlo Ancelotti with his conviction and work ethic.

After all, the Spaniard’s bid to become a first-team regular at Real Madrid has been made considerably more difficult by the club’s recent acquisitions of Jude Bellingham and Arda Guler.

On top of that, Real Madrid have managed to retain the services of Toni Kroos and Luka Modric, at least for another year. This should greatly impact Ceballos’ role in the team going into the new season.

And now, with the former Real Betis starlet suffering a thigh injury, his chances of breaking into the side dissipate even further.

But with Ceballos vowing to return as soon as possible, it will be interesting to see how he recovers from the injury, with it being reported that the midfielder could be out for around six weeks.

Real Madrid teenage talent faces uncertain future following increase in competition

Journalist Jordi Gil has reported through SPORT that Arda Guler’s situation at Real Madrid is becoming increasingly difficult. 

This is because Guler is unhappy with the lack of playing time he experienced last season and is determined not to spend another season on the bench.

During the recently concluded Euro 2024, Guler demonstrated his immense talent to the world. This competition gave him the platform to showcase his abilities, which had largely remained unseen during the season at Real Madrid. 

He only featured in a few games towards the end of the season, which were inconsequential as Real Madrid had already secured the league title.

Guler has injuries to blame

Guler’s troubles began early last season when he suffered an injury during the American tour. This setback, combined with the challenge of adapting to a new language and style of football, made it difficult for him to find his footing. 

Although Carlo Ancelotti tried to support him mentally, he did not provide Guler with enough opportunities to play.

The youngest is now determined not to let history repeat itself. He is willing to force a move, possibly through a loan, if he does not get more playing time, even though Real Madrid want him in the first team

This situation could escalate if Guler continues to see himself as the last option in the squad. Milan and Bayer Leverkusen have already expressed interest in him.

Guler is way down the pecking order

Currently, Guler is behind several high-profile players in the pecking order. Stars like Kylian Mbappe, Vinicius Jr, and Rodrygo are ahead of him. 

Additionally, Brahim Diaz has the edge, and in midfield, Guler faces competition from Jude Bellingham. Breaking into the starting lineup seems like an almost impossible task at the moment, even though he proved his worth at the Euros.

Meanwhile, it is said that Florentino Perez has great faith in him. Perez wants to see Guler succeed at Real Madrid, but the challenge now lies with Ancelotti in managing the team. 

Benching established stars to give playing time to a young prospect like Guler could create tension in the dressing room.

Real Madrid have a surplus of attacking options. The arrival of Mbappe has brought renewed hope to Real Madrid fans, but the significant investment in the French star might disrupt the harmony within the squad that Ancelotti has worked hard to maintain.
