The 2023-24 season has been dealing cruel hands to teams around Europe, with players dropping like flies due to extensive injury issues in volumes never seen before.

Real Madrid have been dealing with one of the worst injury spells they have endured in a while – and it seems like the bad news never stops coming.

After losing centre-back Eder Militao and goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois to serious knee injuries at the beginning of the season, Los Blancos have since seen more of their key squad members succumb to injuries.

The latest of the blows Madrid have suffered have come in the form of serious knee injuries to Eduardo Camavinga and Vinicius Jr while both were on international duties for their respective nations.

As such, Carlo Ancelotti now has the tough task of selecting the cream of the crop from Real Madrid’s youth team to make the all-important step up and fill in the shoes of these two stars who are among the very best in the world in their position.

Enter: Gonzalo Garcia

Earlier today, there were reports that Nico Paz and Mario Martin could enter the fray, with the former already tipped to be a future star for the Merengues.

According to recent reports from Cadena SER, however, another name to especially replace Vini Jr that stands out, is Gonzalo Garcia.

The 19-year-old is a wonderful talent with incredible speed and dribbling ability, with an intensity that is beyond his years.

Madrid fans have also been crying out on social media asking for the Spaniard to be given minutes in the first team.

Last season, Garcia scored 35 goals with the Real Madrid youth team, which ended up winning everything at the national level, and that brought forward a group of players who now shine at Castilla.

And even this season, the winger has already scored six goals and looks like the perfect candidate to start making his mark in the first team.

    The problem with R.Madrid management is to undermine players in Castilla,it could have been long time some of these players displayed what they are made of.Sometimes you hear that such player from castilla is chosen to play for senior team but never get to play until the season close.

Ancelotti-favourite defender will leave Real Madrid if club signs 23-year-old ace

With Kylian Mbappe’s signing now a completed objective, Real Madrid turn to what was always considered the second most critical operation of this summer – Alphonso Davies.

The Canadian full-back has been on Los Blancos’ radar for a while now, but with his contract with Bayern Munich running until 2025, his signing is seen to be a tad bit more complicated.

The Bavarians’ firm stance that they wish to persist with the speedster, needless to say, has only made the objective more complicated for Los Blancos.

No room for three

Despite Bayern Munich’s repeated advances towards Davies in recent weeks, Real Madrid are firm that they will attempt to sign the player this summer.

In light of the Canadian full-back’s possible arrival, Cadena SER reveals that Ferland Mendy will almost certainly leave Real Madrid if Davies’ signing is pulled off.

Carlo Ancelotti is clear that he has no room for three left-backs in his squad. One of Fran Garcia and Mendy must thus leave the Spanish capital in such a scenario and the Frenchman is better placed on that front.

Mendy’s current deal in Madrid runs out next year and the player has been informed that a decision over his future at the club will be taken shortly.

On track with Davies

The Spanish outlet also reveal that the Canadian speedster rejected an offer from Bayern Munich in recent hours and that his departure from the Bavarian capital is not ruled out.

Bayern Munich demand a sum of €50 million for the dynamic full-back. Real Madrid, however, have set a spending limit of €30 million for the youngster and will not exceed that sum in any scenario.

Vincent Kompany’s men thus have a critical decision to make, for allowing Davies to run down the final year on his deal may well back-fire as did the case of Kylian Mbappe with PSG.

Real Madrid, as it stands, appear to be in the driver’s seat.
