Real Madrid may be top of La Liga and their Champions League group, but their season is not particularly going as planned in terms of the personnel.

Injuries started racking up for them as early as pre-season, with Arda Guler and Thibaut Courtois picking up long-term knocks. Eder Militao also ruptured his ACL and was ruled out for most of the season.

Since then, Vinicius Jr, Luka Modric, Ferland Mendy, Aurelien Tchouameni, Eduardo Camavinga, all have picked up injuries at some point, with most of the starting lineup ruled out until 2024.

Daniel Carvajal is the latest entry in this list, having picked up a muscle injury against Granada last weekend. Madrid will have to, therefore, rely on the services of Lucas Vazquez, and possibly Vinicius Tobias for the next month.

In fact, further reports from Manu Amor claim that Madrid are not thinking about reinforcing the right-back position at all, even next summer.

They are more than happy with Carvajal’s performances this season, and the idea is to renew the contract of at least one of Lucas Vazquez or Nacho, both of whom become free agents in the summer of 2024.

Vinicius Tobias has also started training with the first-team following Carvajal’s injury, and could be a regular part of the first-team setup starting next season.

Madrid belive the left-back spot is a bigger problem for them heading into next season. They do not seem to be particularly convinced with Ferland Mendy and Fran Garcia, and are targeting a move for Bayern Munich’s Alphonso Davies.

Further, central midfield and the forward line are a bigger priority for Madrid next season, as they look to bolster their team with enough depth.

Real Madrid officially played their final game of the league season this past weekend and the focus now shifts to the UEFA Champions League final against Borussia Dortmund on June 1.

The Spanish champions have the glorious opportunity to secure their 15th Champions League title this on Sunday.

But heading into this clash, Real Madrid are likely to miss out on the services of one of the key players – Aurelien Tchouameni.

The Frenchman will likely be ruled out for the UCL final due to an injury incurred earlier this month.

Tchouameni on UCL final

Speaking ahead of the final, Tchouameni admitted that it would be very difficult for him to participate in the UCL final.

“I can run, I think it is very difficult to play in this final and we have more players who can be in my position. The important thing is that we are going to win this Champions League,” Tchouameni said.

The Frenchman added that he would try to help the team any way he can, stating, “If I can be the MVP from the bench, I’ll do it.”

Considered by many as the future of the Real Madrid midfield, Tchouameni has played a valuable role in the middle of the park this season.

His versatility, coupled with his ability to spread the play and put pressure on the opposition have served as key to Real Madrid’s success.

Although Tchouameni might not feature in this final, the player expressed his optimism about the Real Madrid team, adding, “I really want to play in this final, but I’m sure we will reach more finals [in coming years].”

Finally, Tchouameni expressed his happiness at Real Madrid, stating, “It’s an incredible feeling to be at Real Madrid.”

Formerly of AS Monaco, Tchouameni has featured in 88 competitive matches since joining Real Madrid in 2022. With Toni Kroos retiring, he is expected to play a crucial role for the club going forward, although not necessarily in the upcoming Champions League final.
