Real Madrid’s association with injuries ahead of the 2023-24 campaign began with the blow Dani Ceballos suffered in pre-season.

From that point on, Los Blancos endured a difficult period in which they lost important names including Arda Guler, Thibaut Courtois, Eder Militao and most recently Vinicius Jr. Now, there finally appears to be positive news for the offices at Veldebebas.

According to reports from Mundo Deportivo, Ceballos returned to training with the group earlier today in what comes as big news for Carlo Ancelotti.

The player is now ready to be called up for the team’s next game against Real Sociedad and make his first appearance after his latest contract renewal.

Madridista until 2027

There was palpable tension in the air towards the back end of last season over the renewal of players with expiring contracts. Ceballos was one among that long list of players.

For a long time, the midfielder appeared to be at the exit door. He eventually renewed his contract until 2027 after discussions with Ancelotti and reassurance of playing time.

Ceballos is one of the best in the business on his day, but it is difficult to comprehend where he would fit into the starting lineup for Real Madrid.

After all, Luka Modric, Toni Kroos, Jude Bellingham, Eduardo Camavinga, and Federico Valverde would all appear to be ahead of him on the pecking order.

A fresh start after the international break

Real Madrid host Real Sociedad this weekend in their fifth league game of the season. The latest update on Ceballos would suggest that he is well-placed to make his maiden appearance of the season on the night.

It will be a critical match for the former Real Betis star as he hopes to leave a strong impression on Ancelotti. After all, he did well to cover for Luka Modric in critical junctures last season.

Ancelotti-favourite defender will leave Real Madrid if club signs 23-year-old ace

With Kylian Mbappe’s signing now a completed objective, Real Madrid turn to what was always considered the second most critical operation of this summer – Alphonso Davies.

The Canadian full-back has been on Los Blancos’ radar for a while now, but with his contract with Bayern Munich running until 2025, his signing is seen to be a tad bit more complicated.

The Bavarians’ firm stance that they wish to persist with the speedster, needless to say, has only made the objective more complicated for Los Blancos.

No room for three

Despite Bayern Munich’s repeated advances towards Davies in recent weeks, Real Madrid are firm that they will attempt to sign the player this summer.

In light of the Canadian full-back’s possible arrival, Cadena SER reveals that Ferland Mendy will almost certainly leave Real Madrid if Davies’ signing is pulled off.

Carlo Ancelotti is clear that he has no room for three left-backs in his squad. One of Fran Garcia and Mendy must thus leave the Spanish capital in such a scenario and the Frenchman is better placed on that front.

Mendy’s current deal in Madrid runs out next year and the player has been informed that a decision over his future at the club will be taken shortly.

On track with Davies

The Spanish outlet also reveal that the Canadian speedster rejected an offer from Bayern Munich in recent hours and that his departure from the Bavarian capital is not ruled out.

Bayern Munich demand a sum of €50 million for the dynamic full-back. Real Madrid, however, have set a spending limit of €30 million for the youngster and will not exceed that sum in any scenario.

Vincent Kompany’s men thus have a critical decision to make, for allowing Davies to run down the final year on his deal may well back-fire as did the case of Kylian Mbappe with PSG.

Real Madrid, as it stands, appear to be in the driver’s seat.
