MADRID – Dani Carvajal will be safely out in the Champions League semi-final return against Chelsea next Wednesday due to a new muscle injury that may cost him to miss the rest of the season, but Real Madrid could recover Sergio Ramos after the captain rejoined training on Thursday morning.
Carvajal has only been able to play 15 games this season due to different muscle injuries and different sources have admitted to ESPN that the right-hander could already miss the rest of the season after suffering a new injury during the draw against Chelsea last Tuesday.
“After the tests carried out today on our player Dani Carvajal by the Real Madrid Medical Services, he was diagnosed with an injury to the semimembranous muscle of his right leg. Pending evolution ”, the club reported on its website.
The full-back, as ESPN learned, will be out of the pitch for at least three weeks but the intention of the doctors is not to force any more to avoid another relapse. Thus, their return would only be valued in case of extreme necessity for the last La Liga match against Villarreal or for a hypothetical participation in the Champions League final if Madrid eliminates Chelsea next Wednesday.
The good news for Zinedine Zidane is that Ramos returned to training on Thursday and sources close to the players have assured ESPN that the captain wants to force him to be in the decisive return match against the Blues.
Ramos suffered an injury to the calf of his left leg during the last national team break with Spain and always had the intention of returning the first week of May.
Despite the fact that during his recovery he contracted the coronavirus, the captain has managed to maintain the same times and is trying to speed up the deadlines to be able to play against Chelsea.
NO NEWS ABOUT HIS FUTURE
In parallel, Ramos is still waiting for news about its renewal. In October ESPN already announced that the captain had asked for two years (without a salary increase) to continue in the white club but since then there has been no news on the matter.
