Real Madrid started the 2023/24 edition of La Liga with a resounding 2-0 victory over Athletic Club.

The game saw Jude Bellingham scoring his first competitive goal for the club and starring in a comfortable win for Los Blancos.

Everything went well for Real Madrid on the night apart from the injury to Eder Militao.

Serious knee problem for Militao

The Real Madrid centre-back had a decent game for the most part before he had to be subbed off during the start of the second half.

Militao was taken off due to a serious knee injury, as the player was screaming in pain. Carlo Ancelotti did not waste any time and brought in Antonio Rudiger.

According to MARCA, the first indications show Militao does indeed have a serious knee problem. Real Madrid are expected to further diagnose the issue by conducting more tests.

Only after further tests, the club can ascertain how long the defender will remain out on the sidelines.

But for the immediate future, it is a major blow for Real Madrid, who have already lost Thibaut Courtois and Arda Guler due to injuries before the start of the season.

While the club are reportedly close to capturing Kepa Arrizabalaga as the replacement for Courtois, finding a replacement for Militao could be a lot trickier.

With David Alaba already coming on the back of an injury-laden year, Militao’s potential absence could force the club to look for options from the youth team.

For the time being, though, the Spanish giants will patiently wait for further diagnostics and test results of Militao’s knee injury.

The worst-case scenario for Los Blancos could be an ACL tear for Militao, but there is a possibility the injury could be less serious than that.

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.
