Real Madrid will play hosts to Real Valladolid in La Liga today afternoon in an attempt to reduce the deficit between them and Barcelona back to 12 points. While La Liga seems as good as gone at this point, Madrid will want to win as many games as possible for their supporters.

Carlo Ancelotti has a fair few last-minute absences from the squad, but this does not include Thibaut Courtois, who has been deemed fit enough to participate in this game.

The defence is lacking three players, though, with Antonio Rudiger, Nacho, and Ferland Mendy out injured for the clash. The Frenchman is out for at least a month, while others could be back in time to face Barcelona.

The entire midfield is fit and running, with both Eduardo Camavinga and Aurelien Tchouameni in the squad list.

Mariano Diaz is the only attacker not part of the hosts. Alvaro Rodriguez is back in after missing the Barcelona clash due to suspension.

Harry Kane ‘very close’ to completing Real Madrid move, only final details remain – report



Jude Bellingham’s move to Real Madrid was finally closed earlier today as officially confirmed by Borussia Dortmund on their website. Yet, the offices at Santiago Bernabeu have not even taken a break to celebrate their success.

According to reports from Alfredo Pedullà, Los Blancos are now completely focused on the acquisition of Harry Kane. The English striker’s arrival is very close to approaching closure and only a few details remain to be sorted.

The Real Madrid and Tottenham Hotspur representatives reportedly held a meeting today over the striker’s transfer. The agenda was to agree on a number for the transfer fee.

The Premier League side began the proceedings with an expectation of €100 to €110 million in exchange for Kane. However, the Merengues suggested a lower point at €80 to €90 million, albeit with the option to include bonuses.

There is not much separating the two parties at the moment, and the minor gap will be bridged in the coming days. Overall, the meeting ended with a broad understanding between the two clubs.

Carlo Ancelotti sees the English striker as the centre-piece of his attack for next season given the recent departure of Karim Benzema. After all, Kane has been one of football’s most consistent goalscorers over the past decade.

Yet, Los Blancos cannot afford to let their guard down with one signing and will need to rope in at least two more names in attack to serve as backup options. The exits of Mariano Diaz, Marco Asensio, and Eden Hazard leave them with no squad depth, after all.

Kane has scored 30, 17, and 23 goals in his last three seasons in the Premier League and is the epitome of consistency. Further, he had three assists in his most recent league season and created 14 big chances.
