With Real Madrid now starting their third day of training in the United States of America, there appears to be a fitness concern in the camp.

Indeed, according to journalist Arancha Rodriguez, new signing Arda Guler is suffering from discomfort in his leg which has prohibited him from joining the rest of the group in training today.

The 18-year-old teenage prodigy arrived at Real Madrid from Fenerbahce earlier this month, with the club shelling out €20 million (plus €10 million in add-ons) for his signing.

Guler snubbed Barcelona to join Real Madrid and has been earning rave reviews for his performances in training sessions so far.

Indeed, previous reports have suggested that based on early impressions in pre-season, Los Blancos are very happy with his signing and consider the investment made in him as money well spent.

Manager Carlo Ancelotti also appears to have been very impressed with his new ward and spoke highly of the Turkish international recently, saying: “Güler is very talented, he is very young, I think the fans are going to enjoy this player.”

While impressing in pre-season training is certainly noteworthy, Ancelotti & co. will be looking forward to see how Guler performs in actual match situations in the upcoming friendly encounters.

But with the latest development surrounding the discomfort in his leg, the player and the staff will be hoping that it is nothing serious and that he recovers in time to face AC Milan on Sunday.

Apart from Guler, Alvaro Odriozola is also not in training today, with the out-of-favour defender said to be dealing with some overload, as per Mario Cortegana.

Real Madrid out-of-favour defender now unlikely to leave the club

Real Madrid missed out on the signing of Leny Yoro after deciding not to match Manchester United’s offer for the 18-year-old defender.

With the French prodigy now on his way to the Premier League, Los Blancos are assessing their options before deciding whether to sign a new centre-back or not.

As things stand, the reigning champions of Spain and Europe seem to be leaning towards relying on their existing options rather than going into the market.

Jesus Vallejo unlikely to leave

As such, MARCA reports that the likelihood of Jesus Vallejo leaving the club have now significantly reduced.

Indeed, the 27-year-old out-of-favour defender now appears more and more likely to continue at Real Madrid beyond this summer.

Vallejo returned to the Santiago Bernabeu after finishing his loan stint at Granada during which he hardly played due to injury and fitness woes.

As such, reports suggested that Carlo Ancelotti & co. were not planning on counting on him next season, even though he was handed a new shirt number recently.

But with the Leny Yoro operation collapsing and Real Madrid not keen on recruiting anyone from the market at this point, the Spanish ace is now unlikely to leave the club.

With David Alaba still sidelined, Antonio Rudiger and Eder Militao will start the new season as the first-choice centre-back pairing and Vallejo will serve as the backup while Aurelien Tchouameni will also be an option.

Vallejo, for his part, wanted to stay put and see out his contract which expires in 2025. And, as things stand, it appears that the player will get his wish.
