Journalist Sergio Santos has issued a fresh update on the injury condition of Real Madrid midfielder Dani Ceballos and it is positive news for the fans.

Ceballos picked up a hamstring injury earlier this week, which led to him missing the UEFA Champions League clash against Shakhtar Donetsk on Wednesday.

It was initially reported that the Spanish midfielder is unlikely to return to action before the FIFA World Cup next month, as there were fears that the injury was a serious one.

However, after tests and MRI scans were conducted earlier today, there is a sense of optimism that Ceballos’ injury is not as worse as initially feared.

As per the report, Real Madrid were worried that there might have been damage to his tendon after scans were carried out yesterday.

But today’s scans have revealed that the former Real Betis midfielder has not sustained any damage to his tendon, meaning that his recovery time will be shorter than initially expected.

So much so that, there is hope that Ceballos could very well return to action before the World Cup kicks off next month. The reporter adds that the Real Madrid ace is eyeing to make a comeback in time for the game against Girona at the end of October.

This is certainly a boost for manager Carlo Ancelotti, given the busy fixture schedule lying ahead. Until the World Cup begins, Real Madrid are playing one match every three days and having Ceballos back towards the end of this run would help him rest and rotate veterans like Luka Modric and Toni Kroos.

Ceballos is not a regular starter at the Santiago Bernabeu but has done well whenever he has been called upon. The Spaniard has earned the confidence of the manager, although he is yet to be offered a new deal by Real Madrid, with his current contract expiring next year.

In what is starting to become an alarmingly common occurrence, a set of Barcelona fans were spotted hurling abusive chants towards Real Madrid superstar Vinicius Jr.

Barça will be facing PSG in the UEFA Champions League quarterfinal today in less than an hour and in the lead-up to the game, a section of the Catalans’ supporters were seen chanting “Vinicius, die” on the streets.

It is not the first time this has happened, with Vinicius being constantly targeted by not only Barcelona fans but supporters of a number of other La Liga clubs.

In fact, last month, Barcelona fans were seen hurling the same chants before their UEFA Champions League Round of 16 tie against Napoli.

The same had happened outside Estadi Olimpic Lluis Companys in Montjuic prior to the Clasico in October last year.

Moreover, this past weekend, a Mallorca fan at Son Moix directed racist abuse towards Vinicius’ Real Madrid teammate, Aurelien Tchouameni.

It is shocking and embarrassing that these incidents continue to occur. It remains to be seen if any action is taken by the concerned authorities against those involved.
