With Real Madrid set to play their final La Liga game before the World Cup break against Cadiz, on Tuesday, Carlo Ancelotti has released the squad list for the encounter.

As confirmed by the manager during his presser, Karim Benzema remains unavailable for selection as he continues to struggle with muscle fatigue.

Along with the French superstar, Los Blancos will also be without defender Antonio Rudiger, who is also recovering from an injury.

There is some good news for Real Madrid as Toni Kroos is back available after missing the last game due to suspension and has been included in the squad by Ancelotti.

Apart from that, it is the usual fair as far as the rest of the squad considered, with Ancelotti not calling up youngster Iker Bravo once again even though he is a striker short due to Benzema’s absence.

Having lost their previous game 3-2 against Rayo Vallecano, Real Madrid will be gunning to return to winning ways against Cadiz.

The onus will again be upon Rodrygo Goes, Vinicius Junior and Marco Asensio, who has been in good touch of late, to deliver the goods in the final third. Kroos’ availability should help the team exert a greater influence on the pitch though.

Brazilian national team ‘dreaming’ of working with Ancelotti – Romano

According to Fabrizio Romano, the Brazilian national team are ‘dreaming’ of appointing Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti as their next manager.

The Selecao decided to part ways with Tite after the team underdelivered in the FIFA World Cup 2022. Ramon Menezes has taken charge of the senior team for the time being until a permanent appointment is made.

And, the Brazil Football Confederation is clear about who their preferred target is. Ancelotti has been heavily linked with the South American nation in recent months and comments from players like Ederson, Rodrygo Goes and Vinicius Jr have only served to further fuel the rumours.

Now, Romano is claiming that Brazil dream of naming Ancelotti as their manager and are hoping that he will be parting ways with Real Madrid at the end of the season.

As far as the situation at the club is concerned, Romano states that Real Madrid are working hard to protect Ancelotti from external pressure as they want him to remain focused on winning the UEFA Champions League this season.

The Italian tactician remains in 100% control of the team at the moment and the club are trying to shield him from external factors.

However, at the same time, trophies are a must at a club of this stature and hence, Romano adds that Real Madrid have a potential list of candidates to take over.

Thomas Tuchel was among the names on the list, but has signed for Bayern Munich. Raul Gonzalez, currently in charge of the Castilla team, is also being looked at along with former Tottenham and PSG boss Mauricio Pochettino.

As of now, Ancelotti remains in control of things at Real Madrid and any decision on his future will only be made at the end of the season. And, Brazil are lying in wait to pounce if an opportunity to sign the Italian manager presents itself.
