As Real Madrid get set to jet off to the United States of America for their pre-season camp, manager Carlo Ancelotti has announced the squad list that he will be taking along with him.

The Italian tactician has named a 25-man squad for the trip to the USA where Real Madrid are scheduled to play four friendly encounters against top teams across two weeks.

As one would expect, the entirety of the first-team squad has been named in the squad by Ancelotti, with the only exclusion being that of Dani Ceballos, who misses out due to injury.

All the new signings – Jude Bellingham, Fran Garcia, Joselu, and Arda Guler, are present in the squad, as is Brahim Diaz, who is back after a three-year loan stint away at AC Milan.

As far as youth players are concerned, Ancelotti has called up 18-year-old wonderkid Nico Paz, as was reported earlier this week, while goalkeepers Fran Gonzalez and Diego Pineiro also feature.

Interestingly, young striker Alvaro Rodriguez does not make the cut, along with Reinier Jesus, who is waiting to secure a loan exit from the club.

Real Madrid will play friendly encounters against AC Milan, Manchester United, Barcelona, and Juventus in preparations for the upcoming campaign.
