Dani Ceballos has rejoined the Real Madrid discipline after ending his participation with the Spanish team in the Olympic Games, but not all the news is good for the Whites. And it is that the midfielder will not be available for Ancelotti at the season premiere because of an injury.
The player has undergone several tests and the club’s medical services have confirmed that he suffers a complete rupture of the anterior peroneal-talar ligament and peroneal-calcaneus. The club has not reported how long Ceballos will be out, but it is estimated that the recovery time is one to two months.
Recall that the player was injured in Spain’s debut match against Egypt in Tokyo 2020. In principle, the doctors of the team said that the player suffered a sprain, and although he could not play again throughout the tournament, he stayed with the rest of their colleagues until the end of it. But after a deeper and more exhaustive examination it has been confirmed that the midfielder’s injury is more serious than it seemed.
In principle, Ceballos was going to stay this season at Real Madrid after spending the last two years at Arsenal on loan. The pubalgia of Toni Kroos was an opportunity for the Utreran to accumulate minutes and gain the confidence of Ancelotti, but after confirming the worst forecasts for the Italian coach, the first setbacks are already beginning to emerge in the center of the field.
