Real Madrid midfielder needs rest after knock vs Valencia, could miss Super Cup final
Real Madrid’s victory against Valencia via penalty shootouts in the semi-finals of the Spanish Super Cup came at a cost as several of their players picked up knocks and injuries.
Eder Militao suffered a blow to the head that left him dizzy and was taken off, while Lucas Vazquez also had to come off with an ankle sprain which has potentially ruled him out for the final this weekend. Federico Valverde also sustained knocks but is expected to be fit and available.
However, the same cannot be said of fellow midfielder Eduardo Camavinga. The 20-year-old, who was handed a rare start on Wednesday, had to come off at half-time due to a knock to the knee.
And, now MARCA is reporting that the French international midfielder will need to rest after his fitness problem which could lead to him missing the finals of the Spanish Super Cup.
Camavinga was spotted icing his knee soon after his substitution and the midfielder, along with the aforementioned duo of Vazquez and Militao were subjected to medical tests today.
As per the report, the youngster will need to rest with there being some serious doubt within the Real Madrid camp over his availability for the finals later this week.
This will come as a blow for Real Madrid and Carlo Ancelotti, who are already without Aurelien Tchouameni, who is sidelined for three weeks due to muscular discomfort.
With Toni Kroos and Luka Modric clocking a lot of minutes and Valverde also sustaining knocks, Ancelotti has a headache when it comes to his options in the middle of the park for the final later this week.
As for Vazquez and Militao, an update on their situation is awaited, although the sensations surrounding the latter’s condition are positive as things stand.
After securing a hard-fought victory over Valencia, Real Madrid will face either Barcelona or Real Betis in the finals.

Real Madrid contact Bayern Munich for €70 million-rated left-back, Germans open to negotiate
Real Madrid are working on reinforcing their team on multiple fronts this summer transfer window, and have prepared a revolutionary sum for their endeavours.
Reports claim that Madrid are ready to sell €300-400 million this summer as they know the team will be unable to compete without a ton more depth.
Four of their forwards have already left the club this summer, a list that starts with Marco Asensio, but also includes Eden Hazard, Mariano Diaz, and most importantly, Karim Benzema.
While it is clear that they will be spending a fortune to bring in multiple attackers, Madrid also need to spare money for other positions, such as the left-back spot.
Ferland Mendy has been placed on the exit list, and even if he is to continue, Madrid have already chosen Bayern Munich’s Alphonso Davies as their next star fullback.
According to Spanish outlet MARCA, Real Madrid have already contacted Bayern Munich over a transfer for Davies this summer. Their approaches have not been rejected by the Bavarian giants.
The report also stated that Madrid have travelled to Munich twice already to speak to Davies’ entourage as they prepare the move. The Canadian has a contract until 2025, and reportedly does not want to extend his deal.
Davies’ attacking prowess could work brilliantly for Vinicius Jr, too, who has been carrying the burden of the left-wing alone for the last two years.
Further, Madrid are very worried about the left-back role, especially given the sheer number of injuries this season. Mendy, David Alaba, Nacho, Antonio Rudiger, and even Eduardo Camavinga have put in shifts in that position.
Davies will not come cheap, though, with the price tag expected to exceed €60-70 million. However, at 22, the Canadian would be a very long-term solution for a problem that’s been worrying Madrid for a few years.
