From absolute oblivion, Al Nassr has become a global brand and household name overnight. The surge in stocks is understandable, considering that Real Madrid legend Cristiano Ronaldo signed and committed for at least the next two years of his career with them last week.

According to reports from MARCA, this is just the beginning of the Saudi-based club’s sky-high ambitions. After securing Ronaldo’s signature, they now aim at signing Luka Modric and Sergio Ramos in the near future to reunite the Real Madrid trio.

Surprisingly, there could be a chance of the side making their fantasy a reality given the situation of the other two players.

At 37 years of age, Modric is still the engine of Real Madrid’s midfield. With the club looking to snap up Jude Bellingham in the summer, the Croat may see it as the right time to call it quits in Spain, although reports suggest that he is willing to stay in Madrid for another year.

Sergio Ramos, on the other hand, is rendering his services at Paris Saint-Germain and has only recently overcome his injuries and become a starter. Yet, he will be 37 by the time the summer window comes around and could look to move away from Europe.

The trio won everything there was to win during their tenure together at the Bernabeu including the UEFA Champions League and La Liga. To see all three in action together would be a fairytale end to their illustrious careers.

Al Nassr currently sit atop the Saudi League standings with 26 points in 11 games but could go down to second later this week if Al-Shabab and Al-Ittihad won their games.

Real Madrid are set to play hosts to Sevilla this evening, in what could prove to be a critical match in the context of the title race.

Although Los Blancos hold a formidable lead at the top of the table, the club are coming on the back of a disappointing result against Rayo Vallecano.

Dropping more points against Sevilla tonight could prove to be costly, especially with Barcelona and Girona breathing down their necks.

Potential Real Madrid lineup vs Sevilla

As Real Madrid approach this crucial game, coach Carlo Ancelotti has to make several arrangements, especially with so many players ruled out either due to injury or suspension.

Defence

Starting from the goalkeeper position, Thibaut Courtois remains out, which means Andriy Lunin should continue in between the sticks, ahead of the unhappy Kepa Arrizabalaga.

In the right-back position, Ancelotti is likely to opt for Lucas Vazquez, as Dani Carvajal is suspended after picking up two yellow cards in the last game.

On a bright note, though, Antonio Rudiger is back and should return to central defence. He will be accompanied by Nacho Fernandez at the heart of Real Madrid’s four-man backline.

Elsewhere in defence, Ferland Mendy should continue to start ahead of Fran Garcia in the left-back position.

Midfield

Moving into midfield, Eduardo Camavinga has been ruled out due to suspension. However, Ancelotti does have a myriad of options in the middle of the park.

Aurelien Tchouameni should continue to operate in the number six position, just behind the two interior midfielders Toni Kroos and Federico Valverde.

Luka Modric is an option on the bench, should Ancelotti require more experience in the middle.

Attack

As for the attack, the Real Madrid frontline should be led by Brahim Diaz once again, even though he faces fierce competition from Joselu.

Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo, on the other hand, are guaranteed choices in the wide attacking spaces, though Ancelotti does have Arda Guler and Alvaro Rodriguez as potential alternatives.
