If the 3-0 thrashing at the hands of Barcelona was not enough, Real Madrid have been dealt yet another setback ahead of the new season.

According to Onda Cero, Ferland Mendy is set to be ruled out on the sidelines for at least a month due to a fresh hamstring injury.

A disastrous year for Ferland Mendy

Mendy picked up the knock during a recent friendly against FC Barcelona, where Real Madrid were thrashed 3-0. The defender had a horrid time on the pitch, eventually ending the game limping off to the sidelines.

This recent injury is the latest setback for Mendy, who has endured a disastrous year so far. The defender’s progress has been marred by injuries, which has also impacted his role in the team.

The Frenchman started off the year with a muscle injury in January. Shortly after returning to full fitness in March, he picked up another ankle injury in April.

Now, it appears the left-back is once again set for a spell on the sidelines, following his latest hamstring knock.

More misery for Mendy

How will it impact Mendy’s future?

It is no secret that Mendy is not one of the most important players in Real Madrid right now. The defender has fallen behind in the pecking order since the turn of the year.

Following the return of Fran Garcia, Mendy’s role in the team was expected to dwindle further next season.

Now, after the injury, it remains unclear how it will impact the fullback’s future. Many consider him the only sellable option in the first team this summer.

However, with Mendy currently injured, Real Madrid may have a hard time finding a suitor in the market.

The Frenchman was linked with a move to Saudi Arabia earlier in the month, but the rumours have since died down. Therefore, it will be interesting to see how things pan out in the coming weeks.

Real Madrid’s attacking unit has been crippled by the loss of Karim Benzema earlier in the summer, which was followed by the loss of Vinicius Jr due to injury.

Although Vinicius has returned, there is much left to be desired from the Madrid frontline as we progress through to the season.

Real Madrid, though, are waiting on the arrival of Endrick. The young Brazilian is set to join the Real Madrid squad in the summer of 2024 when he turns 18.

Real Madrid impressed by Endrick

Endrick has already started his preparation for his pending move to Santiago Bernabeu, having performed exceptionally well in his native Brazil this year.

The youngster is constantly working on his game, in order to further improve himself as an attacker. It has left Real Madrid quite happy and eager for his arrival, reports Fabrizio Romano.

The journalist claims that Real Madrid have been keeping close tabs on everything Endrick has been doing, on and off the pitch, at Palmeiras.

And they have received very good reports on the 17-year-old, with the club impressed by how he is putting efforts to improve himself both performance-wise and in other facets.

Despite there being some question marks over his performances, the teenage forward is starting to showcase his potential, having scored five goals in five starts for Palmeiras.

Endrick also learning new languages

Endrick is not only just working on his performance. In fact, the Brazilian is also learning other languages in order to quickly settle into life in Spain.

The youngster can speak Portuguese, but he may have to master Spanish during his time at Santiago Bernabeu.

As mentioned earlier, Endrick can already speak Portuguese, which should go a long way in helping him team up with fellow Brazilians Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo.

Even Eder Militao can speak Portuguese, which should make it easier for Endrick to adapt to life in Spain, at least for the next year or so.
