Real Madrid forward Rodrygo has shared his thoughts on the 2023/24 season, expressing a mix of satisfaction and personal disappointment. 

While he acknowledges that it was a successful year for the team, he feels that he could have performed better individually. 

Despite scoring 17 goals and providing nine assists, Rodrygo believes he has more to offer and aims to improve his statistics in future seasons.

It must be noted that the recent signing of Kylian Mbappe has stirred up a lot of speculation about Rodrygo’s future with the club. 

The rumours intensified when Rodrygo made comments about Manchester City before the Champions League final and although he clarified that his words were misunderstood, the fact that Pep Guardiola reached out to him added fuel to the fire.

What does the future hold for Rodrygo?

With Mbappe joining the team, many believe that Rodrygo might be the one to make way for the new star. 

Interestingly, many believe that since his market value is high and there are several clubs interested in him, it might be a good time for Real Madrid to sell him.

Despite these rumours, Rodrygo has made it clear that he wants to stay at Real Madrid and even the club also wishes to keep him.

Currently, Rodrygo is focused on representing Brazil in the Copa América. However, his thoughts are also with Real Madrid. In his recent statements, he has expressed his commitment to the club and his eagerness to continue growing as a player there.

“It was a good year, a great season. I motivate myself a lot. I believe I can always improve,” said the Brazilian (h/t RM4Arab).

“I am very happy with the team’s collective level. We won La Liga and UCL. I want to score more goals and provide more assists. I was at a very good level, but I can be better.

“I hope that next season will be a perfect season like last, winning the most important titles and all the titles we can win,” he added.

Meanwhile, Rodrygo also welcomed the arrivals of Mbappe and Endrick to the team, even though they will be competing with him for playing time. He sees their signings as positive moves for Real Madrid and looks forward to working with them.

“The arrival of new players is always important and the team always gets stronger every year. I hope the next season will be great,” he concluded.

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.
