Squeezing in International games in an already stacked calendar comes with its own set of complications. The biggest of them is undoubtedly the increased injury risk for the players involved.

Eden Hazard fell victim to the same when Belgium faced the Netherlands yesterday. The winger started on the night but was forced off in the 63rd minute after an unfortunate clash with Marten de Roon. 

According to reports from Mario Cortegana, it appears that Hazard has just suffered a minor knock, and his injury is nothing serious. Moreover, it was always the plan to remove him at the hour mark to preserve his fitness. As it stands, the Belgian will easily make it back on time to face Osasuna.

Injuries have marred the former Chelsea star’s career at Real Madrid since he arrived in 2019. While he has shown his quality in glimpses, Hazard has not even been remotely close to the monstrous winger he was in the Premier League.

Los Blancos take on Osasuna in seven days, and Ancelotti will hope to have Hazard available on the night. Given that the club have a whopping eight games in October, one can expect heavy rotation and a more pronounced role for the 31-year-old.

So far this season, the forward has made only four appearances for the club across all competitions. He found the back of the net in the Champions League against Celtic but has failed to make any other direct contribution to the goal.

Needless to say, this is Hazard’s final chance to prove his worth to Real Madrid’s management. Any serious injury hereon can close the curtains on his career in Spain.

Ancelotti-favourite defender will leave Real Madrid if club signs 23-year-old ace

With Kylian Mbappe’s signing now a completed objective, Real Madrid turn to what was always considered the second most critical operation of this summer – Alphonso Davies.

The Canadian full-back has been on Los Blancos’ radar for a while now, but with his contract with Bayern Munich running until 2025, his signing is seen to be a tad bit more complicated.

The Bavarians’ firm stance that they wish to persist with the speedster, needless to say, has only made the objective more complicated for Los Blancos.

No room for three

Despite Bayern Munich’s repeated advances towards Davies in recent weeks, Real Madrid are firm that they will attempt to sign the player this summer.

In light of the Canadian full-back’s possible arrival, Cadena SER reveals that Ferland Mendy will almost certainly leave Real Madrid if Davies’ signing is pulled off.

Carlo Ancelotti is clear that he has no room for three left-backs in his squad. One of Fran Garcia and Mendy must thus leave the Spanish capital in such a scenario and the Frenchman is better placed on that front.

Mendy’s current deal in Madrid runs out next year and the player has been informed that a decision over his future at the club will be taken shortly.

On track with Davies

The Spanish outlet also reveal that the Canadian speedster rejected an offer from Bayern Munich in recent hours and that his departure from the Bavarian capital is not ruled out.

Bayern Munich demand a sum of €50 million for the dynamic full-back. Real Madrid, however, have set a spending limit of €30 million for the youngster and will not exceed that sum in any scenario.

Vincent Kompany’s men thus have a critical decision to make, for allowing Davies to run down the final year on his deal may well back-fire as did the case of Kylian Mbappe with PSG.

Real Madrid, as it stands, appear to be in the driver’s seat.
