Real Madrid have outlined two ways to deal with Eder MIlitao’s injury

Just a week into the new season, Real Madrid have found themselves in a spot of bother.

The club’s star defender Eder Militao has picked up an ACL injury, leaving Carlo Ancelotti with limited options at the back.

Signing a replacement this late in the window could be tricky, which means Real Madrid must settle for options available at home.

Dani Carvajal and Ferland Mendy: Ancelotti’s two alternatives

Following Militao’s injury, David Alaba and Antonio Rudiger are set to become the two main centre-backs for Real Madrid, with Nacho being the obvious alternative.

But going beyond that, Diario AS suggest Ancelotti could fancy two more alternatives in the form of Ferland Mendy and Dani Caravajal.

Mendy has some amount of experience operating as a centre-back, as he did so a few times under the leadership of Zinedine Zidane.

Carvajal, to that end, might not have that much experience, but the right-back is known for his composure in any defensive position.

His experience also makes him an invaluable option.

Castilla: The third alternative

Over the years, Real Madrid have depended heavily on La Fabrica to deliver them young talents for the first team. This may be one of those cases.

Fortunately for Ancelotti, he has no shortage of options. The Italian already admires the academy’s rising star, Marvelous Antolin Garzon – more fondly called ‘Marvel’.

Marvel appears to be the leading choice for Real Madrid, in their bid to find the fourth centre-back for the season ahead.

The youngster has already been spotted training with the team after Militao’s injury. However, 18 year old must impress the coaching staff in these training sessions, if he wants to become a trusted option for Ancelotti.

Until then, the Italian can bank on the services of either Mendy or Carvajal.

    Mendy and Carvajal are similar with kind of defending because they retreat backwards most of the time when facing an opponent thus creating a room for options for their adversaries.Better stick with Marvel as he is still young and can be utilised to learn from the likes of Carmavinga who can play a defensive role much better.

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.
