As Germany look to reclaim the European Championship on their home soil this summer, there is much excitement in the country, particularly after the return of Toni Kroos.

The Real Madrid superstar came out of retirement to represent Die Mannschaft for the upcoming Euro 2024, to be played in Germany.

Germany fans are thrilled to have Kroos, whose leadership and experience are things the team has been lacking over the past few years.

The hype around Kroos’ return to the national team reached a fever pitch when Adidas unveiled Germany’s kits for Euro 2024.

Adidas CEO on shirts demands for Kroos

According to Bjorn Gulden, CEO of Adidas, the official kit sponsor of the German national team, the response to Kroos’ return was nothing short of remarkable.

“The day after the new shirts were unveiled, Toni Kroos’ shirts sold twice as many as any other,” Gulden revealed (h/t Tageszeitung).

Adidas announced the new kits for the German team last week. Designed to represent German football tradition in a modern way, the kit perfectly encapsulates the return of Kroos by fusing together tradition and modernity.

Kroos’ jersey sales signify the widespread excitement surrounding his return. As one of the most decorated and respected figures in German football, his presence is set to be a driving force for Die Mannschaft as they aim to reclaim European glory on their home turf.

In the meantime, Kroos is training with the German national team for the upcoming friendlies. He will mark his return to the national team this weekend as Julian Nagelsmann’s men take on France in an international friendly.

Real Madrid are in active negotiations with LOSC Lille for the transfer of Leny Yoro. After weeks of impasse, the club appear to have made some ground in the race to sign the Frenchman.

However, should the Yoro deal fall through in the coming weeks, Real Madrid have identified Lazio’s Mario Gila as the ideal alternative.

Formerly of RM Castilla, Gila currently plies his trade for Lazio and has emerged as a key defensive lynchpin for the Italian outfit, impressing onlookers with his technique and discipline.

However, in a major development, it appears Mario Gila has picked up a fresh injury during training, reports Diario AS.

In the pre-season camp at Auronzo di Cadore, Gila appears to have fractured his left foot and could be out for several weeks.

Lazio confirmed the defender’s injury, stating, “Mario Gila underwent clinical and instrumental examinations which revealed a fracture of the phalanx of the big toe of his left foot, suffered during training.”

Gila has started taking the appropriate treatment and the extent of his injury will be known soon. However, as things stand, the defender could be out for at least the next few weeks.

What does this mean for Real Madrid?

Mario Gila’s fresh injury setback is sure to dwindle any hopes of a potential return to Real Madrid this summer.

In any case, Gila’s chances of returning to Santiago Bernabeu were slim given that Real Madrid have finally made some ground in the deal to sign top defensive target Leny Yoro.

Los Blancos, though, would have liked having someone like Gila available as an alternative, especially with LOSC Lille still demanding a fortune for the Frenchman.

Unfortunately, that might not be an option anymore, no thanks to Gila’s injury. The club, though, will keep a close eye on the Spaniard’s injury situation, knowing he could return to fitness before the end of the summer break.
