Navas rules out surgery
Real Madrid goalkeeper Keylor Navas has confirmed that his recent Achilles injury will not require surgery, which would rule him out of action for the majority of this upcoming season. "I'm getting better, I hope to be better as soon as possible. Fighting for the starting spot? I always do, nobody has come yet." Navas has been linked with a move away from the Santiago Bernabeu this summer as the arrival of De Ge would push him back to the third-choice keeper, something that he is unlikely willing to accept in the prime of his career.
Neymar out of Copa America
Brazil captain Neymar was ruled out of the remainder of the Copa America on Friday after being hit with a four-match ban for headbutting a Colombian player in a post-match brawl. The surprisingly severe sanction means that Neymar, who was also fined $10,000, will play no further part in the tournament, unless the Barcelona player lodges a successful appeal.
Neymar given Copa America ban
Neymar has been "provisionally suspended" for one match after receiving a red card in the aftermath of Brazil's Copa America defeat to Colombia. But the Barcelona star could yet face a harsher punishment when South American federation CONMEBOL's disciplinary committee meet on Friday "to decide the final punishment".
The Brazil striker had received his second booking of the tournament just before half-time for a handball, guaranteeing he would miss at least one match. He was later shown a red card after the final whistle when he kicked the ball at an opponent, provoking a melee in which he also appeared to aim a headbutt at Colombian goalscorer Jeison Murillo.

Marcelo out of Copa America
Real Madrid left-back Marcelo has been ruled out of the Copa America. The national team's doctor was informed by Real Madrid that Marcelo had been carrying an injury, and after an examination Brazilian officials ruled the left-back out of the summer tournament.
"We were told by Real Madrid doctors that in a training session he went to jump and since then he's been suffering severe pain in the lumbar region," Rodrigo Lasmar, Brazil's national team doctor said. "We did some tests and he won't be able to start to train with us on Monday. He'd need around three weeks, more or less, to be able to train. Today he has real problems, he can't walk. There's no other solution."
Suarez expected to be fit for Copa del Rey
Barcelona striker Luis Suarez is back in training ahead of Saturday's Copa del Rey final. Suarez has missed the last two weeks after picking up a hamstring injury during the Champions League semi-final second leg against Bayern. However, he returned to training today, and is expected to be fit to face Bilbao, despite not being given the official all-clear.
Suarez doubtful for Copa del Rey Final
Barcelona striker Luis Suarez still hasn't been able to train with the team, and he is still not cleared for the Copa del Rey decider. Suarez suffered a left hamstring strain in the second leg of the Champions League semifinal against Bayern.
He'll continue to do physiotherapy and work separately during the week, and there are serious doubts among the coaching and medical staff about his availability for not only the Bilbao match, but also the Champions League Final against Juventus.
Diego Alves to undergo knee surgery
Valencia goalkeeper Diego Alves will require surgery on a torn ligament in his right knee. The Brazilian injured his leg and had to be substituted in the second half of Valencia's 3-2 win at Almeria on Saturday. That victory earned the team a fourth-place finish in the Spanish league and a Champions League berth for next season. The 29-year-old Diego Alves, known as a specialist at saving penalties, has been Valencia's first-choice goalkeeper for the past four seasons.
Suarez will be fit for Champions League
Barcelona coach Luis Enrique is confident Luis Suarez will be fit in time to play in the Copa del Rey and Champions League finals. The striker missed Saturday's 2-2 draw with Deportivo with a hamstring injury, leading to fears he could be absent for the clashes against Athletic Bilbao and Juventus. "Suarez is not 100% and we didn't want to take risks, but he should be ready for both finals," said Luis Enrique.

Benzema suffers torn muscle
Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema's season at club level is over after the La Liga side confirmed on Thursday that he had torn a thigh muscle in his right leg. French international hobbled off after an hour of Madrid's 4-1 win at Espanyol last weekend. The 27-year-old is also a major doubt for two friendlies for France, against Belgium on June 7 and Albania six days later.
Gomes sidelined for three months
Valencia midfielder Andre Gomes will be sidelined for the next three months after undergoing successful surgery on a quadriceps injury suffered in last weekend's 1-1 draw with Celta Vigo. Gomes will soon begin his lengthy recovery as he hopes to be fit in time for next season's opener, but may still be out of action for Valencia Champions League play-in game, should they finish fourth this Saturday.
Suarez fit for Atletico
Barcelona striker Luis Suarez picked up a slight hamstring strain in the Champions League clash at the Allianz Arena and was initially a doubt for today's fixture with Atletico. However, Spanish newspaper AS has confirmed that Suarez trained with Luis Enrique's contingent yesterday and will be fit for consideration for the game in Madrid.

Real to assess Ramos injury
Sergio Ramos will be evaluated by Real Madrid's medical staff after it was confirmed that the defender is suffering from a calf injury. Real announced on Friday that Ramos had sustained a grade one muscle injury in the soleus of his left leg.
The revelation follows reports in Spain that Ramos would miss the final two games of the season after allegedly playing the full 90 minutes of Champions League semi-final second leg against Juventus with "a ripped calf".
