The addition of Kylian Mbappe and Endrick, coupled with Arda Guler’s magnificent showing in Euro 2024 is set to have major implications for the Real Madrid squad heading into the new season.

There will be some players who may have no choice but to settle for a move elsewhere. Rodrygo has already been linked with a move away from Santiago Bernabeu, but other players, such as Brahim Diaz, could leave the club as well.

The former Manchester City starlet was recently courted by several European clubs, including Tottenham and AS Roma. But it appears the player, for his part, has no desire to leave Santiago Bernabeu.

Brahim Diaz rejects Saudi move

A recent report from El Chiringuito (h/t SPORT) has offered a fresh update on the future of Brahim Diaz.

The report suggests Diaz has also received offers from Saudi Arabia. In fact, clubs from the Middle East nation are willing to offer him a bumper salary of €100 million spread over four years.

Even Qatari football is interested in acquiring the services of Brahim Diaz. But it appears the player has no desire to move to the Middle East and has snubbed their advances so far.

Will Diaz leave Real Madrid this summer?

The report adds that Brahim Diaz is open to opportunities in the Premier League, especially if a big club approaches him this summer.

Arsenal, for one, are reportedly interested in Brahim, with Mikel Arteta keen on a reunion, having previously trained him at Manchester City.

Real Madrid, meanwhile, will not rule out Brahim’s exit, especially if they receive a reasonable offer for the Moroccan international.

The European champions value Brahim at around €40 million, even though the release clause embedded in his contract is valued at €60 million. It now remains to be seen whether or not any club are willing to fork out such a figure for the Real Madrid star this summer.

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.
