It has been a week of highs and lows for Real Madrid as they won the Spanish Super Cup last Sunday by beating Barcelona, before being eliminated from the Copa del Rey by neighbours Atletico Madrid last night.

The work does not stop for Carlo Ancelotti and his men, though, as they were back training at Valdebebas today, to prepare for the upcoming La Liga encounter against UD Almeria on Sunday.

Lucas Vazquez back in group training

Today’s session at Valdebebas saw Real Madrid welcome Lucas Vazquez back to group training, with the veteran having recovered from his injury, reports Mundo Deportivo.

The 32-year-old suffered a hamstring injury earlier this month which has led to him missing the team’s last four matches – two in the Copa del Rey and two in the Spanish Super Cup.

Ancelotti had commented earlier in the week that Vazquez would return to training on Friday, and that is how it has materialised, with the veteran right-back rejoining the group for today’s sessions.

As such, it is likely that he will be ready to face Almeria on Sunday.

Another positive development for Real Madrid from today’s training session, as per the report, was the increased intensity at which key defender Eder Militao was training.

The 26-year-old has been out of action since the first match of the season due to an ACL injury and was expected to miss almost the entirety of the campaign.

But the Brazilian international has been working hard on his rehabilitation and has cut short his recovery time.

The report mentions that Militao is getting closer to working with the group again. His recovery is going from strength to strength and in the coming weeks he will be able to train with the rest of the squad.

A return on the pitch, as reported previously, could take place in March.

English sources: Manchester United has an ‘unbeatable’ offer for Real Madrid striker

According to a recent report from Defensa Central, Manchester United have set their sights on Real Madrid forward Joselu and for that, they are prepared to make a generous offer to lure him, proposing a two-year contract with an impressive salary of €5 million net per year.

Manchester United’s interest in signing Joselu has grown in recent months. His reputation has been on the rise, and United are willing to go all out to secure his signature. 

At Real Madrid, the forward’s exceptional performance, particularly his two crucial goals in the European Cup semi-final against Bayern Munich, has made a significant impression. 

It is said that this performance highlighted the importance of keeping a strong squad, and Joselu’s contributions have not gone unnoticed.

Real Madrid can sign him

While Joselu is currently committed to Espanyol until June 2024, Real Madrid hold a potential purchase option for him

The cost of this option is relatively low, but it is important to note that Real Madrid’s roster is quite full, with limited space for new players. 

Despite this, Joselu’s previous stint in the Premier League has not been forgotten, and Manchester United remains keenly interested in bringing him back to England.

Joselu is an old-school forward who knows what it means to face some of the toughest defences in the world. He understands the challenges and the battles that come with playing at the highest level. 

United love Joselu

Even if he is not guaranteed a starting position, his experience and knack for scoring goals make him a valuable addition to any team. 

Manchester United see these qualities in Joselu and believes he could be a significant asset to their squad.

In England, there is talk of a lucrative two-year contract on the table for the Galician footballer. This deal would significantly boost Joselu’s salary, offering him €5 million net per year. 

This substantial increase in his earnings is a key part of United’s strategy to tempt him away from Real Madrid’s Valdebebas training complex.

Carlo Ancelotti and his staff are very pleased with Joselu’s performance as he has proven to be more than just a team player, but there is a chance that they might still lose him this summer.
