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.

Paris Saint-Germain manager Luis Enrique has asked for patience regarding Kylian Mbappe’s future, saying that everyone must wait for the player and PSG to make an official announcement.

Now that the Ligue 1 team has qualified for the UEFA Champions League semi-final, the player is rightly expected to focus on the continental glory, keeping aside his impending move to Real Madrid.

Speaking after his side’s 4-1 win over Barcelona in the UCL quarter-final, Enrique said that he cannot comment on anything unless Mbappe himself releases a statement.

“Let’s wait for Kylian to speak about his future. When Mbappe and PSG will speak in public, we will see,” said Enrique as quoted by Fabrizio Romano.

“It’s like a process. Until Mbappe goes and speaks in public, I’m just here waiting and staying silent,” he added.

What’s going on with Mbappe?

Mbappe’s time with PSG is coming to an end as his contract expires this season, and if reports are to be believed, he has chosen to depart as a free agent.

Reports suggest he is set to join Real Madrid, with rumours of a contract already in place.

Now, it was suggested that PSG’s elimination from the Champions League could have hastened the process, potentially bringing Mbappe’s move to Madrid closer. 

However, their qualification for the semi-final, and the chance of facing Real Madrid in the final, mean any official announcement will likely be delayed.

As for the player, he revealed after the match that his future will not change even if PSG go on to win the UEFA Champions League. 

“Playing for the team from my country’s capital is very special, I dreamed of these play-offs when I came to PSG. It’s a great day for the club,” said the forward.
