Real Madrid midfielder Dani Ceballos will make his comeback from injury soon after the international break, reports AS.

The 27-year-old is likely to be ready in time for the Merengues’ La Liga clash against Real Sociedad this coming weekend, the report adds.

Unfortunate timing

Ceballos signed a new contract with Real Madrid this summer, with his previous one expiring on June 30. Despite the intense competition for places in midfield, the Spaniard opted to stay and fight for a place in the team.

But only a few days into the pre-season, on July 13, the midfielder suffered a thigh injury, and has since been out of action for almost two months now.

Indeed, Ceballos was not part of the US pre-season tour and stayed behind in Spain, working with the physios and trainers to get back to fitness.

There were expectations that he could return to action sometime in August, but that has not happened, although the 27-year-old is now on the verge of making his comeback, having resumed light training over the past couple of weeks.

Intense competition

While Ceballos is expected to be fit and available for the upcoming game against Real Sociedad, there is no guarantee that he will be receiving minutes under Carlo Ancelotti.

After all, the competition for places in the Real Madrid midfield unit has never been more intense.

Aurelien Tchouameni, Federico Valverde, Eduardo Camavinga, and Jude Bellingham have all made fine starts to the season and as such have even relegated veteran superstars Toni Kroos and Luka Modric to the bench.

Given the situation, Ceballos will have a huge challenge ahead of him to force his way through into this star-studded midfield unit – a task that could get even harder once Arda Guler also returns to full fitness.

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.
