Good news for Benítez.

Rafa Benítez will soon be able to rotate his central defenders given that Pepe completed today's training session with the rest of the squad. The Portuguese has been out for more than a month and that has caused Real Madrid some serious troubles because of Ramos' shoulder injury.

Karim Benzema was able to complete today's training session too and could play some minutes against Las Palmas this weekend. The French picked up an injury during the last FIFA break and he should be ready to play against PSG next week. Benítez will most likely be careful with his return as Jesé is good enough to play at home against Las Palmas this Saturday.

James will be back with the squad very soon too and the same happens with Carvajal. All in all, it seems that Real Madrid's injury list will be significantly smaller during the next few days. Good news for Benítez.
