Real Madrid are struggling with fitness issues again this season much like the last one. There have already been a number of injuries to key players in the team and many believe that the season might potentially be set up for failure already. Los Blancos did not have much depth to begin with and their expanding injury list has made things much worse.
Eder Militao and Thibaut Courtois could potentially be out for the entire season due to their ACL injuries. Vinicius Junior is expected to miss several weeks of action as well and his injury is worse than first expected.
What some fans may have forgotten however is that two Real Madrid players suffered injuries in pre-season. Those are Dani Ceballos and Ferland Mendy. And it looks like there is finally a positive update on the injury front for the club.
As reported by AS, Dani Ceballos and Ferland Mendy are already advancing in their set-up. They probably will already be available for the next game against Getafe.
Two Real Madrid players look set to return
Ceballos picked up an injury in training before Real Madrid left for their pre-season tour in the United States and has been working on his recovery ever since. The Spanish midfielder is believed to have resumed light training and ball work over the past few weeks and is preparing for his full comeback to the squad.
As for Mendy, the Frenchman was injured during the pre-season El Clasico against Barcelona and has not played a single minute this season due to it. The fullback is also believed to be progressing well in his recovery process and is on the verge of a comeback, albeit in more of a backup role to Fran Garcia.
Both Ceballos and Mendy could be set to make their returns in Real Madrid’s next match against Getafe at home. With the squad already pretty light due to injuries, it will be good to have them back as part of the rotation.
