Real Madrid face a stiff test midweek as they will take on Paris-Saint Germain in a must-win game. Los Blancos trail by a goal after the first leg, and must win against the French outfit by at least two goals at the Bernabeu.

However, all is not well at Pochettino’s camp ahead of the Champions League clash. As officially confirmed by the Ligue 1 club on their website and social media, both Sergio Ramos and Ander Herrera will miss the clash against Real Madrid.

Since his move to PSG on a free transfer, Ramos has had little continuity. The Real Madrid legend has been under pressure with repeated injuries and is still not fit to play. It is a shame, for his return to the Bernabeu was much anticipated.

Herrera, on the other hand, is suffering from an attack of conjunctivitis and will train on his own until the end of the week.

It is not only the visitors who suffer from the absence of starts for the game on Wednesday. Carlo Ancellotti will be without the serviced of Casemiro and Ferland Mendy on the night owing to suspensions.

To rub salt into the wounds, Toni Kross too is doubtful for the clash in Madrid after his recovery failed to progress as expected.

Kylian Mbappe suffered an injury in training but is expected to start on the night nevertheless. With both managers missing key players, the clash is set to become altho more unpredictable.

Real Madrid are looking towards a heavy splurge in the coming summer transfer window. After all, they do not even have another option given the sheer number of player departures already finalized.

Los Blancos have lost the services of Karim Benzema, Marco Asensio, Mariano Diaz, and Eden Hazard over the past week. While three of the four players predominantly featured on the bench, their presence in the squad gave Carlo Ancelotti’s side much-needed depth and a cushion of sorts.

The forward unit is, thus, the most prioritized department ahead of the transfer window. However, pieces are beginning to fall apart on other fronts and could potentially put the club in a difficult situation.

According to reports from Gianluca Di Marzio, Juventus are eyeing Lucas Vazquez and hope to sign him in the coming month. Contacts between the two parties have begun and the transfer fee discussed appears to be around the €6 million to €8 million ballpark given that he has just one year left on his contract.

The player, for his part, is willing to sign for the Italian giants given his relative lack of minutes at the Santiago Bernabeu. At 31 years of age, he understandably does not want to play a second-fiddle role.

Vasquez played part in 23 of Real Madrid’s 38 La Liga games last season, starting only on 12 occasions. Even in his few appearances, he averaged a mere 50 minutes per game.

The veteran completed the season with four goals and an assist to his name. Further, he averaged five defensive actions and a key pass in every game and feels hard done by his limited role.

Vazquez’s departure would place the club in a tricky situation as it would leave Real Madrid with only Dani Carvajal as a natural right-back option. Nacho Fernandez could, in theory, serve as the backup but a new signing for the position cannot be ruled out.
