Real Madrid’s ongoing left-back conundrum was always going to have an impact on the future of Fran Garcia.

Re-signed from Rayo Vallecano for a fee of just €5 million last summer, Garcia was unable to make a meaningful impact at Santiago Bernabeu.

Now, with Real Madrid determined to sign Alphonso Davies in order to beef up the left-back department, the future of Fran Garcia come under the microscope.

Real Madrid put Fran Garcia up for sale

In a major development, Real Madrid appear to have already put Fran Garcia up for sale ahead of the summer transfer window.

This is as per reports carried by SPORT, which suggests Garcia has become the collateral damage of an ongoing tussle of ideas between Carlo Ancelotti and President Florentino Perez.

Ancelotti wants to continue with Ferland Mendy for at least another season, whereas Perez is determined to sign Davies as soon as possible.

Should Real Madrid end up signing Davies this summer, Garcia would fall further down the pecking order. As such, Los Blancos are ready to get rid of the young left-back in the coming summer.

How will will Real Madrid make?

As per the report, Real Madrid are valuing Fran Garcia at around €12 million, even though the player’s Transfermarkt value stands at €15 million.

It seems the European giants are ready to offload Garcia on a cut-price deal in order to make way for Alphonso Davies.

It is already clear that Ancelotti does not trust Garcia and even if Real Madrid fail to sign Davies this summer, the Spaniard might not receive much game-time.

A departure from the Santiago Bernabeu this summer could mark a significant downfall for Fran Garcia, who had made his debut for the Spanish national team in October of last year.

Just in: Real Madrid’s defensive target picks up fresh injury

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.
