As Real Madrid prepares to lock horns against Cadiz shortly, the team is presented with an opportunity to give Girona a run for their money in the league standings and finally acclimatize themselves to first place.

The Merengues will especially be keen to produce a statement performance following Barcelona’s draw yesterday against Rayo Vallecano.

However, working around the influx of injuries will require a great deal of effort and sacrifice.

One man in particular aims to soften the relentless storm of injuries, with Jorge C Picon (h/t MadridXtra) coming out to report that Jude Bellingham is willing to take all measures possible to be available for his side.

Bellingham seeks temporary remedies

Indeed, the report argues that Jude Bellingham is likely to take painkillers to play in the next few games.

The Englishman’s shoulder is yet to be relieved from pain, but that will not stop him from donning the Royal White jersey in this time of crisis.

Pain, like an uninvited guest, has taken residence in Bellingham’s shoulder, yet the 20-year-old looks to alleviate the constraints of the injury that tether him.

Real Madrid lacking options upfront

Considering the deficiencies in attack, having Bellingham at the team’s disposal would be a great boost.

Vinicius Jr’s injury with Brazil in the international break leaves Rodrygo and Joselu as Real Madrid’s only fit attackers.

As such, being able to field La Liga’s leading goalscorer today and in the games to follow would prove to be a major surplus.

The recently crowned Golden Boy has scored 13 goals in 14 games. And despite his injury yet to truly heal, his presence is bound to aid the team immensely.

Still, Real Madrid are arguably going out on a limb, with the possibility of Bellingham losing some of his strength and also suffering a long-term injury on the cards.

Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos has said that during a recent training session, he bumped into Raul, a former striker and current Castilla manager, who confessed to him that he did not like his decision to retire from the game.

The midfielder added that he would now be interested in playing the Legends match where the likes of Zinedine Zidane, Roberto Carlos and Raul participate. 

The veteran admitted that playing alongside these legends one day would be quite exciting.

“When I left the training yesterday, Raul was outside. He told me that he did not like the decision at first but found something positive because now I’m definitely playing this legends game with him,” said Kroos on his podcast

“He said I had to be there. Me and Zizou playing behind him, Figo on the right, and RC3 (Roberto Carlos) at the back. That could be funny,” he added.

During the early hours of Tuesday, May 21, Kroos announced that he would retire from professional football after the upcoming European Championship in his home country.

As a result, Real Madrid now have to work on an alternate strategy to plan life beyond Kroos. As suggested before, the Los Blancos are of the idea that at present, there is no one in the market who can fill the void.

On the other hand, though, Dani Ceballos’ chances of staying have now increased. At the same time, there are reports that Joshua Kimmich is being monitored, but nothing seems concrete yet.

For now, Real Madrid are largely expected to rely on the current roster as the likes of Aurelien Tchouameni, Eduardo Camavinga, Federico Valverde and even Jude Bellingham are more than capable of occupying Kroos’ position.

If even that does not work out, the team from the Spanish capital can look into the youth system to rope in a capable alternative.
