Güler successfully operated - speculation about the return of Sergio Ramos

Cruciate ligament rupture at Thibaut Courtois, cruciate ligament rupture at Eder Militao – Real Madrid had enough bad news to deliver in the past few days. On Monday, however, the royals announced that Arda Güler, who had been missing for some time anyway, will be missing for a long time.

The Turkish summer newcomer had to undergo an arthroscopic procedure on his right knee, as the Champions League record winner officially announced. The club-related “Marca” assumes a downtime of up to one and a half months – at least.

A meniscus injury was diagnosed in the young hopeful on the US trip on July 29th. Only after returning to Madrid should a decision be made on how to proceed, so Güler was now operated on. The offensive player, who was bought for 20 million euros and already compared to Mesut Özil, had imagined the start in the Spanish capital very differently.

Laporte deal more likely

In view of the options for coach Carlo Ancelotti, it is not absolutely necessary for Real to add personnel to the offensive. The Blancos could probably use a central defender after the Militao-Aus. Currently only Nacho, Antonio Rüdiger and David Alaba are left in the squad for the center of defence. A wild rumor brought up the “Sport”, which reports on a possible return of Sergio Ramos (37) – without a club after the end of the contract in Paris.

The real legend could eliminate the vacancy on the defensive for a season. However, the variant with Aymeric Laporte (29) from Manchester City is considered more likely and promising. The 22-time Spanish international (one goal) moved to the island from training club Athletic Bilbao in January 2018. Real signed Kepa for the goal on Monday.
