France witnessed a bittersweet moment on Tuesday as their 1-0 win over Austria was overshadowed by Kylian Mbappe’s injury.

The Real Madrid signing banged his face into Austria defender Kevin Danso and was left with a broken nose. He was substituted shortly afterwards.

Mbappe’s injury has led to uncertainty over his availability in the next game against the Netherlands, though he is yet to be ruled out.

Real Madrid calm about the situation

Real Madrid fans must have had their hearts in their mouth as they witnessed Mbappe bleeding down the sidelines.

Unfortunately for Los Blancos, the club are powerless at the moment as Mbappe is still contractually bound to PSG until the end of June.

Indeed, Mbappe’s contract at PSG expires on June 30, even though Real Madrid have already officiated the transfer just before the start of the European Championship.

Despite this, Real Madrid remain calm about Mbappe’s fitness, reports MARCA. The club appear relieved that the forward is under the jurisdiction of the French national team.

Real Madrid have complete trust in France’s medical staff and believe the player can soon return to full fitness.

For now, the European champions are monitoring the situation closely, waiting for France to come up with an update on the attacker’s fitness.

Mbappe, after all, may require surgery if the knock turns out worse than feared. It must be noted that surgery could impact Mbappe’s availability during the early stages of his Real Madrid career.

Didier Deschamps has recently confirmed that Mbappe will require surgery in the long run, but for now, the forward could be available to play for France in the rest of the tournament.

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.

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.
