5 Defenders Real Madrid Could Secure to Sub for Injured Militao

10 months ago

Injuries have shadowed Real Madrid's path as they approach the upcoming season. The team's medical staff faces unrelenting pressure, dealing with a cascade of injuries during both the preseason and regular matches. The recent dual setback, as Thibaut Courtois and Eder Militao sustain severe knee ligament injuries in quick succession, adds to the club's predicament.

As Real Madrid seeks to address Courtois' absence with Chelsea's Kepa Arrizabalaga, their search for a successor to fill Militao's role is underway. In this article, we scrutinize five potential options that Los Blancos could consider in their quest to reinforce their defensive ranks. Read on to find out 5 Defenders Real Madrid Could Secure to Sub for Injured Militao.

Aymeric Laporte


The seasoned Spanish international, Aymeric Laporte, brings a wealth of experience from his tenure at Athletic Club. His availability could prove invaluable for Real Madrid. Laporte's playing time was limited last season, with only 22 starts in Manchester City's fixtures, as indicated by infogol. The arrival of Josko Gvardiol is set to further diminish his opportunities, potentially making a move to the Bernabeu a tempting prospect. It's worth noting that at 29, Laporte shares the left-footed attribute with David Alaba and Nacho Fernandez.

Benjamin Pavard


Reports from Goal suggest that Benjamin Pavard, the versatile World Cup winner, is eager to depart from the Allianz Arena. Despite his integral role in Coach Thomas Tuchel's squad, Pavard might explore new avenues, especially in the wake of Militao's injury. Should Real Madrid express interest, Pavard could bring his multifaceted abilities to bolster the defense.

Antonio Silva


A burgeoning talent, the 19-year-old Portuguese international Antonio Silva, has cemented his place in the heart of Benfica's defense. While securing Silva's services might require a substantial investment, given Real Madrid's track record of nurturing young prospects, this opportunity should not be disregarded. Silva's promise could significantly enhance Los Blancos' defensive capabilities.

Thiago Silva


Despite his settled position at Chelsea, the allure of Real Madrid remains hard to resist. For 39-year-old Thiago Silva, the prospect of representing the world's premier club could mark an apt culmination of his illustrious career. Despite his age, Silva's leadership and on-field performance remain unparalleled. While Chelsea might hesitate to part ways, the prospect of donning the white jersey could be irresistible for Silva.

Sergio Ramos


Former Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos, currently without a club following his tenure at Paris Saint-Germain, remains a subject of speculation. Although linked to moves in the MLS and the Saudi Pro League, reports indicate that the 37-year-old defender is inclined towards a return to the Bernabeu. A possible reunion could rekindle Ramos' bond with the club where he left an indelible mark.

In the sphere of recent developments, Real Madrid's acquisition of Chelsea's goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga has been confirmed. The 28-year-old joins Los Blancos on a one-year loan deal, without any obligation for a permanent transfer. Kepa is poised to vie for the coveted number 1 jersey at Real Madrid, competing alongside Andriy Lunin.
