Real Madrid loanee and Almeria player Sergio Arribas is being hailed as a hero after saving a couple from drowning in the Maldives.

Arribas was on vacation in the Maldives with his girlfriend when he noticed a couple struggling to stay afloat while snorkelling. Without hesitation, he jumped into the water to assist them, reports MARCA.

As per the report, the couple had drifted too far from the shore and were struggling to keep their heads above water. Arribas reached them and helped them back to the shore, where they were met by a group of people who had rushed to their aid.

Fans and coaches alike are lauding Arribas for his quick thinking and bravery in a situation that could have had tragic consequences.

Arribas is currently on loan at Almeria from Real Madrid. He made 34 league appearances for the club this past season, scoring nine goals while mustering five assists. He is expected to return to Real Madrid at the end of the season.

Arribas’ impressive performances on loan have raised many eyebrows inside the Real Madrid camp and it will be interesting to see whether or not the youngest becomes a part of the Real Madrid setup in the coming season.

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.
