The Real Madrid defender, like Militao and Courtois, suffered a cruciate ligament rupture last season with Real Madrid.

It is often said that coming back from an injury as serious as a torn cruciate ligament is not an easy thing and the winning return of Thibaut Courtois is a blessing in this sense. The same goes for Eder Militao to a lesser extent because the Brazilian is still far from having found his best level as seen at the end of the season with Real and then with the national team. He will need time.

For Alaba, things are (already) going badly

Later in the season, David Alaba suffered the same injury and it seems that his case is the most worrying of the three. The Austrian press gives an update on Tuesday and we will have to be very patient with him.

In fact, the injury is more serious than expected, according to the media Die Presse, which already rules out a return of the Madrid defender before 2025 because there are complications with the cartilage, which is also affected.

According to the details provided by Ramon Alvarez de Mon, the Real Madrid medical staff understood quite quickly after the operation that his recovery would be particularly complex.

Almost 7 months after his injury, the Austrian still struggles to climb stairs as explained by the local media who were able to observe him closely during the Euro. Alaba, although out, had in fact accompanied his teammates.

What is certain is that Carlo Ancelotti will not be able to count on him for the entire first half of the season, which also reinforces the idea that the signing of Leny Yoro or a central defender is essential.
