The final game of the regular season is upon us as Real Madrid and Liverpool lock horns in the UEFA Champions League final. A replay of the 2018 final, fans can expect a lot of fireworks, especially given how the rest of the campaign has fared for both clubs.

Ahead of the mouth-watering clash, Carlo Ancelotti has announced the squad that will travel to Paris for the game. And for the first time this season, Real Madrid have the entire first-team at their disposal.

Eden Hazard returned to action earlier this month, playing 25 minutes against Cadiz in a 1-1 draw. Gareth Bale, too, is back in the squad after not playing for the team in over a month.

In midfield, the scintillating trifecta of Luka Modric, Toni Kroos, and Casemiro will be in action, supplemented by Federico Valverde, Eduardo Camavinga, and Dani Ceballos.

This will likely be Marcelo’s final game in the white of Real Madrid, and as such, could get some minutes off the bench. All four centre-backs in David Alaba, Eder Militao, Nacho Fernandez, and Jesus Vallejo travel, too.

Ancelotti-favourite defender will leave Real Madrid if club signs 23-year-old ace

With Kylian Mbappe’s signing now a completed objective, Real Madrid turn to what was always considered the second most critical operation of this summer – Alphonso Davies.

The Canadian full-back has been on Los Blancos’ radar for a while now, but with his contract with Bayern Munich running until 2025, his signing is seen to be a tad bit more complicated.

The Bavarians’ firm stance that they wish to persist with the speedster, needless to say, has only made the objective more complicated for Los Blancos.

No room for three

Despite Bayern Munich’s repeated advances towards Davies in recent weeks, Real Madrid are firm that they will attempt to sign the player this summer.

In light of the Canadian full-back’s possible arrival, Cadena SER reveals that Ferland Mendy will almost certainly leave Real Madrid if Davies’ signing is pulled off.

Carlo Ancelotti is clear that he has no room for three left-backs in his squad. One of Fran Garcia and Mendy must thus leave the Spanish capital in such a scenario and the Frenchman is better placed on that front.

Mendy’s current deal in Madrid runs out next year and the player has been informed that a decision over his future at the club will be taken shortly.

On track with Davies

The Spanish outlet also reveal that the Canadian speedster rejected an offer from Bayern Munich in recent hours and that his departure from the Bavarian capital is not ruled out.

Bayern Munich demand a sum of €50 million for the dynamic full-back. Real Madrid, however, have set a spending limit of €30 million for the youngster and will not exceed that sum in any scenario.

Vincent Kompany’s men thus have a critical decision to make, for allowing Davies to run down the final year on his deal may well back-fire as did the case of Kylian Mbappe with PSG.

Real Madrid, as it stands, appear to be in the driver’s seat.
