Real Madrid’s injury woes were compounded on Thursday night when the reigning Spanish champions locked horns with Valencia.

Although the club were able to come away with a 2-0 victory, they had to cope with the injury to Karim Benzema as well as Eder Militao. The star striker was enjoying an excellent game, notably registering two assists and five key passes, before being subbed off around the mark.

The forward appeared to have a groin problem and demanded his substitution in the 60th minute when he was replaced by Rodrygo.

However, according to Arancha Rodriguez via RM4Arab, Benzema’s injury is not thought to be serious. He is expected to undergo tests today, which will ascertain the extent of his knock.

Real Madrid will be hoping that the Frenchman’s knock is not too serious as the player has already struggled with injuries during the earlier stages of the campaign. He has indeed missed seven league matches due to injury-related issues.

Benzema’s absence in such matches has had a direct impact on Real Madrid’s performances in the league this term. The Merengues, after all, all trailing league leaders Barcelona by a whopping five-point margin.

With the club bracing themselves for a tough February schedule, the availability of their star players such as Benzema could be integral, as Los Blancos look to perform well not only in the league but also in Copa Del Rey and the UEFA Champions League.

In the meantime, Real Madrid are preparing ahead for the Sunday encounter against Mallorca in the league. Whether or not Benzema, who has scored nine goals in 12 league matches this term, returns to full fitness before this tie remains to be seen.

Turkish giants to go all-out to sign Real Madrid outcast – report



There is no way back for Eden Hazard at Real Madrid. The Belgian international has not given the management any reason to have faith in his abilities over his past four seasons at the club and is unsurprisingly the most important departure for the Merengues in the summer.

Hazard has one more year on his contract in Madrid. However, it is clear that Carlo Ancelotti does not trust him and that any potential replacement manager in the summer will echo his stance.

According to reports from Mundo Deportivo, Fenerbahce are willing to go all out to sign Hazard this summer. The Turkish side have made the former Chelsea their prime target, yet face a steep task ahead of them.

The 32-year-old is hellbent on seeing out his contract with Los Blancos despite seeing his career sink right before his eyes. It thus becomes complicated for the party to lure away the forward, especially in a competition outside Europe’s top five leagues.

Fenerbahce attempted to sign the winger in the recently concluded winter transfer market. They reached an agreement with Real Madrid but failed to get over the line as they could not convince the player of the move.

The biggest obstacle for the Turkish side will be convincing Hazard to make the move by letting go of his lucrative contract in Madrid. The chances are slim, but not impossible.

Hazard has made just three league appearances and one start for Ancelotti’s side this season in La Liga, a steep fall from last season’s 18 and seven respectively.

His last appearance for the team came back in January when Real Madrid faced Cacereno in the Copa del Rey. In La Liga however, he last played in September 2022 in a 4-1 win over Mallorca.
