Following the conclusion of an incredibly successful domestic campaign, several Real Madrid players are now serving their national teams in the ongoing Euros and Copa America tournaments.

Thirteen Real Madrid players travelled to Germany for the Euros this summer, with France hosting the most Merengues’ stars at EURO 2024.

Indeed, the Les Bleus squad includes four players from the Spanish capital club – defensive ace Ferland Mendy, midfield duo Aurelien Tchouameni and Eduardo Camavinga, and new signing Kylian Mbappe.

While Tchouameni was unable to feature in France’s opening game of the tournament due to an injury he picked up over a month ago, his return is finally in sight.

Late in the 2023/2024 season, the Frenchman sustained an injury that caused him to miss the UEFA Champions League final.

Tchouameni was initially expected to miss a significant portion of the Euros, but his swift recovery brings excellent news for his team.

France kicked off their Euro campaign with a nervy 1-0 win over Austria and now gear up to lock horns with the Netherlands today in what promises to be an enthralling encounter.

With Tchouameni fit, he could replace Adrien Rabiot, who has also been linked with a move to Real Madrid, in the starting XI and form a partnership alongside Kante, who enjoyed a great opening game.

However, considering Tchouameni just returned from a lengthy recovery period, it is unlikely that he will immediately be pushed into the lineup.

Time will tell how Didier Deschamps manages Tchouameni’s minutes, but there is no doubt that he would be delighted to have one of his star players back ahead of a crucial clash.

Former Real Madrid defender breaks silence on possible return rumours

Real Madrid’s left-back situation this summer is filled with intrigue. The futures of Ferland Mendy and Fran Garcia are uncertain, while long-time target Alphonso Davies has yet to be signed.

Amidst this uncertainty, Miguel Gutierrez has emerged as a potential candidate for Real Madrid, with the Castilla graduate impressing during his time at Girona.

Gutierrez opens up about potential homecoming

The 22-year-old left-back departed Real Madrid for Girona in the summer of 2022 for a modest fee of €4 million.

However, as is customary practice with many young academy graduates departing the club, Madrid astutely negotiated a 50% sell-on clause in his Girona contract.

The Merengues also integrated a cost-effective buyback option of just €8 million, making his potential return to the club this summer a stark possibility.

Touching upon the possibility of a return, Gutierrez acknowledged Real Madrid’s buyback option, expressing his lifelong support for the club. However, he emphasized focusing on the present, particularly the upcoming Olympic Games.

“It is true that Real Madrid have a buyback option that depends on them, but I have always been a Real Madrid fan, and it is a pleasure for me to have my name appear there,” he told EFE Deportes.

“But this is something that must be left aside and focused on what matters now, which is the Olympic Games.”

As an underlapping full-back with tremendous qualities in possession, Gutierrez has the potential to offer something different compared to the likes of Mendy and Garcia.

However, it remains to be seen if Real Madrid can get their hands on Davies, as his arrival would likely imperil the Spaniard’s chances of joining.
