Real Madrid duo will not undergo surgery this summer despite shoulder issues

Injuries came thick and fast for Real Madrid last season, as the club battled with a storm of absences throughout the campaign.

Coach Carlo Ancelotti and co. ultimately managed to weather the storm and the players available at his disposal stepped up to the plate remarkably to ensure the lack of squad depth did not imperil their chances of competing for trophies.

However, due to the continuous injury lapses, some of the Merengues‘ stars did not prolong their recovery periods.

The likes of Jude Bellingham and Brahim Diaz made premature returns from their injuries last season and are still suffering from some of those effects.

Surgery has been ruled out for both players

Bellingham and Brahim were originally scheduled to have surgery on their shoulders following the season and the Euros.

However, AS now reports that surgery is not currently in the club’s plans as the players will likely continue playing with protective gear to prevent further injury until necessary reassessment.

“Neither of them have had surgery and we do not believe that it is in their plans, given what they agreed with the doctors,” club sources have affirmed to the newspaper.

Bellingham injured his shoulder last November against Rayo Vallecano after a clash with Isi Palazon. Since then, he has played with a shoulder pad.

Similarly, Brahim Diaz suffered a severe fall during the Madrid derby last September, dislocating his right shoulder. Despite this, he continued playing and finished the season without issues.

For now, the club is willing to brush over precautionary measures, especially with the tight schedules and minimal time available ahead of next season.

While Brahim is scheduled to travel to Valdebebas on the 15th for medical examinations prior to beginning training with Antonio Pintus, Bellingham will take a vacation following the European Championship in Germany.

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.
