Last night, Real Madrid new signing Kylian Mbappe broke his nose during France’s UEFA Euro 2024 opener against Austria in Dusseldorf.

The French superstar suffered the injury after being in a collision with Austria defender Kevin Danso in the second half, forcing him to be taken off.

It was initially expected that Mbappe might require surgery, but that option is now off the table, although the forward will have to train and play with a protective face mask.

Mbappe could miss the next two matches

It was already expected that Mbappe could miss France’s upcoming Group D clash against the Netherlands.

However, now, Foot Mercato reports that while the forward’s availability against the Netherlands is ruled out, he could even miss their final group game against Poland.

As such, Les Bleus manager Didier Deschamps might have to make do without his captain and best player until the Round of 16 stages.

Mbappe played a key role in France’s slender win over Austria, forcing the own goal scored by Maximilian Wober on the night.

While he did go on to miss a gilt-edged chance in the second period, the Real Madrid new boy was a threat in attack and his absence will be felt by the 2018 FIFA World Cup winners.

But France will not take any risks with their captain and as such, he will not be rushed against the Netherlands on Friday night and could even miss the game against Poland next Tuesday.

Real Madrid defender set to stay after requesting to see out his contract

Real Madrid welcomed four players back from loan this summer: Reinier, Rafa Marin, Juanmi Latasa, and Jesus Vallejo and bid goodbye to Marin already, while the others are expected to evaluate their futures with the club.

Vallejo joined Real Madrid in 2015, but he has primarily played on loan at other teams, including Real Zaragoza, VfB Stuttgart, Wolves, and Granada twice.

Having concluded his third stint at Granada, the player is back in the Spanish capital and now seeks a resolution over his future.

Jesus Vallejo held a meeting with Real Madrid’s hierarchy

Indeed, according to AS, Jesus Vallejo recently met with Real Madrid and made a request to fulfill the final year of his contract.

The club has opted not to exert pressure, leaving his future in his own hands: whether he decides to leave or stay, they support his decision.

After all, Vallejo has been with the club for several years, and Real Madrid intends to honour the wishes of one of the players who have been at the club for the longest time.

The 27-year-old centre-back was a part of the Real Madrid squad in the 2021/2022 season and played sparingly.

But he proved to be a dependable option when called upon and enjoyed a memorable performance in the Champions League against Manchester City as a late substitute.

Due to Real Madrid’s options at the back and the potential signing of Leny Yoro, Vallejo is unlikely to find regular game time if he opts to stay put.

Despite managing just three appearances for relegated Granada last season due to an injury, Vallejo looks forward to putting his physical woes behind him and starting afresh.
