Carlo Ancelotti’s side take on Liverpool in the finals of the UEFA Champions League in one week’s time, and have been handed a major boost following the final matchday of the Premier League season.

According to reports from Sky Sports, the Premier League side will likely be without their midfield star Thiago Alcantara for the game in Paris.

The Spanish international started Liverpool’s final league clash against Wolves earlier but was forced off at half-time owing to an injury. The former Bayern Munich man was involved in his team’s equaliser in the first half but pulled his hamstring later in the game.

Thiago’s absence comes as a big blow to Jurgen Klopp’s side. The 31-year-old has been a regular in his side’s starting XI this season, scoring one goal and providing four assists in the process.

This would be the second final Thiago would miss for his club, having already missed the League Cup final against Chelsea in February. Surprisingly, the player missed that fixture owing to a hamstring injury too.

The club have not released any official statement about the Spaniard’s injury or how long he will be out. However, recovering from a hamstring injury in less than a week is undoubtedly a big ask.

His absence hands Real Madrid a massive boost in their pursuit of the UCL title. While the Reds still have a formidable squad, Thiago’s absence will certainly help Los Blancos control the proceedings on the night,

Real Madrid target has rejected advances from Bayern Munich – report

Harry Kane has once again become the centre of attention ahead of the upcoming summer transfer window.

With the forward having just 12 months remaining on his current contract at Tottenham, many expect him to leave the club at the end of the season. His situation has alerted Real Madrid, who were in contention to sign the player last summer.

However, Real Madrid are not the only club interested in the services of Kane, with the Englishman also being courted by Bayern Munich. The German giants are in the market for a top-class forward after being almost beaten by Dortmund for the Bundesliga title this term.

But according to Christian Falk, Harry Kane has decided to reject a move to Bayern Munich this summer. This is a significant boost for Real Madrid, as they continue to harbour hopes of signing the Englishman next season.

Amid growing fears over Karim Benzema’s continuity at Santiago Bernabeu, Real Madrid have had to step up their efforts to sign a new striker ahead of the new season.

The Spanish giants have been linked with a move for Roberto Firmino lately, with the Liverpool striker set to become a free transfer in the coming summer. But a proven superstar such as Kane could be a much better option for a club like Real Madrid.

With 280 goals in 435 matches for Tottenham, Kane has an excellent track record at the highest level of football and can help Real Madrid once again fight for the Champions League title next season while challenging Barcelona for the league crown.

But on the flip side, Real Madrid could think about the future, especially as they look to sign either Kylian Mbappe or Erling Haaland in 2024. Splashing the cash on Kane this summer, therefore, could complicate matters, as far as the club are concerned.
