Real Madrid will face off against English champions Manchester City in the first leg of the UEFA Champions League semi-finals at the Santiago Bernabeu on Tuesday night.

In what is a replay of last season’s semi-final tie, the Merengues go into the game high on confidence after winning the Copa del Rey by beating CA Osasuna in the final on Saturday night.

Ahead of the blockbuster encounter against Pep Guardiola’s in-form Manchester City side, Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti has released the squad list that will be at his disposal for tomorrow’s match at the Bernabeu.

Ferland Mendy misses out due to an injury while Los Blancos will also be without key defender Eder Militao, who is suspended for the match due to accumulation of cards.

Interestingly though, Real Madrid have included Dani Ceballos in the squad even though it had been reported that the Spaniard would be out of the match due to a thigh injury after he missed the Copa del Rey final last weekend.

However, given that he did not train today, Ceballos is unlikely to feature against the Cityzens.

Meanwhile, Ancelotti has already confirmed that Luka Modric, who has only recently returned from injury, will be starting in midfield while Eduardo Camavinga is set to feature at left-back.

Real Madrid plan to hold talks with Chelsea over €60 million-rated German international

Kai Havertz has emerged as the latest target for Real Madrid as they look to beef up the attacking unit ahead of the new season.

The club are bracing themselves for the loss of Marco Asensio, who is reportedly closing in on a move to Paris Saint-Germain. Even Dani Ceballos is facing an uncertain future at Santiago Bernabeu, though the club are making a last-gasp effort to keep hold of the midfielder.

In order to mitigate the losses, Real Madrid are planning to bring in a new attacker, with Havertz emerging as a potential candidate.

According to Fabrizio Romano, Real Madrid’s plan is to hold talks with Chelsea in the next few weeks, over the possibility of Havertz’s move to the Bernabeu.

The Premier League giants seek good money for the German international, but do not consider him ‘untouchable’. The player, after all, has endured a difficult season, where his productivity has been questioned.

The former Bayer Leverkusen starlet has netted seven goals in the Premier League this past season, but the number could have easily breached the 15 mark if the forward had successfully converted most of his chances.

Chelsea, therefore, are ready to offload the German ahead of the new season. The Blues had signed the young playmaker in the summer of 2020, for an astounding €80 million. But the move has not paid off at all, with the player scoring just 32 goals in 139 appearances.

Chelsea are now keen on recouping some of that investment by asking big money for Havertz this summer. Real Madrid, for their part, are not exactly clear how much they should spend on the German, but they appear ready to take the gamble on the player.
