According to Carrusel Deportivo, Real Madrid midfielder Jude Bellingham completed the training session today and he will play the upcoming away match against Cadiz.

A few days back, we reported that Real Madrid were working tirelessly on two players, namely Bellingham and Dani Ceballos for them to be fit for the contest. 

As it turns out, while it is unknown whether or not the England superstar will be available, it has emerged that he will, indeed, play his part against Cadiz.

It is to be noted that the midfielder experienced a shoulder dislocation during Real Madrid’s match against Rayo Vallecano at the beginning of this month.

As a result, he was unable to play in the team’s following matches against Braga and Valencia, although he was present on the bench for the Champions League fixture.

Furthermore, while he is eager to make a comeback, the coaching and medical staff are adamant about avoiding any risks unless he attains full fitness.

The initial timeline of Bellingham’s recovery of two weeks has already been met, but it is understood that the midfielder was still not 100% fit.

During his recent training sessions, the Englishman actively engaged with his teammates for a portion of the time but allocated the rest to focused recovery efforts aimed at preventing relapse that might occur.

But, the 20-year-old completed the training today without any problems and a medical green light appears certain.

On the other hand, as far as Ceballos is concerned, he is also ready for a comeback and his return is more fruitful for Madrid considering that they will be without the likes of Eduardo Camavinga and Aurelien Tchouameni.

Furthermore, Kepa Arrizabalaga is currently training alone as he continues to achieve full fitness, meaning that Andriy Lunin will retain his place in the playing XI.

Lastly, midfielder Federico Valverde will arrive in Madrid tomorrow and his position will be finalized only after that.

Real Madrid officially played their final game of the league season this past weekend and the focus now shifts to the UEFA Champions League final against Borussia Dortmund on June 1.

The Spanish champions have the glorious opportunity to secure their 15th Champions League title this on Sunday.

But heading into this clash, Real Madrid are likely to miss out on the services of one of the key players – Aurelien Tchouameni.

The Frenchman will likely be ruled out for the UCL final due to an injury incurred earlier this month.

Tchouameni on UCL final

Speaking ahead of the final, Tchouameni admitted that it would be very difficult for him to participate in the UCL final.

“I can run, I think it is very difficult to play in this final and we have more players who can be in my position. The important thing is that we are going to win this Champions League,” Tchouameni said.

The Frenchman added that he would try to help the team any way he can, stating, “If I can be the MVP from the bench, I’ll do it.”

Considered by many as the future of the Real Madrid midfield, Tchouameni has played a valuable role in the middle of the park this season.

His versatility, coupled with his ability to spread the play and put pressure on the opposition have served as key to Real Madrid’s success.

Although Tchouameni might not feature in this final, the player expressed his optimism about the Real Madrid team, adding, “I really want to play in this final, but I’m sure we will reach more finals [in coming years].”

Finally, Tchouameni expressed his happiness at Real Madrid, stating, “It’s an incredible feeling to be at Real Madrid.”

Formerly of AS Monaco, Tchouameni has featured in 88 competitive matches since joining Real Madrid in 2022. With Toni Kroos retiring, he is expected to play a crucial role for the club going forward, although not necessarily in the upcoming Champions League final.
