Real Madrid have released the list of 20 players that will be in the squad for their upcoming La Liga encounter against Levante on Thursday night.

The newly-crowned La Liga champions will take on relegation battlers Levante at the Santiago Bernabeu but will have to make do without some of their regulars for the game.

Heading into the game, Los Blancos are once again set to be without defensive mainstay David Alaba, who is still sidelined due to an injury, while Dani Carvajal and Marco Asensio are also unavailable for the clash.

The same goes for Dani Ceballos and Gareth Bale, who have been training but are not fit enough to make the squad. Eden Hazard is also back in training but has not been included in the list by manager Carlo Ancelotti.

There are no major surprises, with young defender Gila getting a call-up, along with exciting midfield prospect Peter. Club captain Marcelo is also a notable absentee for Real Madrid.

Thibaut Courtois and Karim Benzema, who were not part of the starting XI against Atletico Madrid last time out, could feature here. Lucas Vazquez could start at right-back considering Carvajal has not made the squad.

FULL LIST:

Goalkeepers: Courtois, Lunin, Fuidias
Defenders: Militao, Vallejo, Nacho, Mendy, Gila
Midfielders: Kroos, Modric, Casemiro, Valverde, Vazquez, Camavinga, Peter
Forwards: Benzema, Jovic, Vinicius, Rodrygo, Mariano

Real Madrid considering move for Manchester City superstar as club faces possible sanctions

Premier League has come up with a shocking statement, charging defending champions Manchester City with more than 100 breaches of the financial rule between 2009 to 2018.

The allegations levelled at Man City could lead to a point deduction for the defending champions or perhaps even expulsion. This could prove to be significant for not Premier League but European football in general.

To that end, a new report from Daily Mail suggests Real Madrid are keeping close tabs on the situation. They are aware of the fact that if Man City get sanctioned, it could rule them out of the chase for top target Jude Bellingham.

But more importantly, it may open up the opportunity to sign Erling Haaland in the near future. The Norwegian international was one of Man City’s smartest business move in the summer when they roped in the star striker for a meagre fee.

However, Spanish media believes Haaland has a release clause in his contract worth around €200 million. It could be activated in the summer of 2024 and clubs like Real Madrid are said to be interested in activating the clause.

But in light of the recent allegations made against Man City, Real Madrid are anticipating a potential mass exodus, and could make an early move for the forward, especially if the English giants get sanctioned by the Premier League board.

It goes without saying that Haaland, who has been scoring goals for fun since joining the Premier League outfit, is someone who demands to play at the highest level of football. It was one of the key reasons he joined Man City – a club that can offer consistency in terms of sporting success.

But a potential sanction for City could change the dynamic, possibly paving the way for a club like Real Madrid to establish themselves as an excellent suitor for Haaland.
