Real Madrid trio on the risk of getting suspended vs Girona if they get booked

Real Madrid lock horns with Celta Vigo on Saturday night on Matchday 29 of La Liga. Not all hope is lost yet in the league, and Carlo Ancelotti’s side will go all out in an effort to take all three points with conviction against the Galicians.

Three players in white are on the verge of suspension in the Spanish League ahead of kickoff. If either Eduardo Camavinga, Dani Ceballos, or Daniel Carvajal sees a card on Saturday night, they will miss the midweek clash against Girona.

Considering the lineup that started against Chelsea in the high-intensity Champions League quarterfinal, there is a good chance Camavinga will not start on the night. After all, the Frenchman completed the 90 minutes at Stamford Bridge and deserves time to recoup.

The same case stands with Daniel Carvajal, who played over 81 minutes on the night. The right-back department is thus likely to be manned by Lucas Vazquez, thus leaving Carvajal with little room to see another yellow card.

Dani Ceballos, however, is almost a guaranteed starter going by Ancelotti’s rotation patterns. The Italian tactician will not risk Luka Modric and Toni Kroos after such a high-voltage clash, thus paving the way for the Spaniard to weave his magic.

Only 11 points separate Los Blancos and Barcelona on the league standings. With just nine games left on the calendar, it does appear to be too much to ask of Real Madrid, but a comeback surely cannot be ruled out.

After all, Barcelona take on Atletico Madrid on Sunday and face a real chance of dropping points. The Blaugranas are winless in their last three games, and Diego Simeone’s side will pose a stiff challenge. A Real Madrid win on Saturday would really put pressure on Xavi’s men.

Harry Kane ‘very close’ to completing Real Madrid move, only final details remain – report



Jude Bellingham’s move to Real Madrid was finally closed earlier today as officially confirmed by Borussia Dortmund on their website. Yet, the offices at Santiago Bernabeu have not even taken a break to celebrate their success.

According to reports from Alfredo Pedullà, Los Blancos are now completely focused on the acquisition of Harry Kane. The English striker’s arrival is very close to approaching closure and only a few details remain to be sorted.

The Real Madrid and Tottenham Hotspur representatives reportedly held a meeting today over the striker’s transfer. The agenda was to agree on a number for the transfer fee.

The Premier League side began the proceedings with an expectation of €100 to €110 million in exchange for Kane. However, the Merengues suggested a lower point at €80 to €90 million, albeit with the option to include bonuses.

There is not much separating the two parties at the moment, and the minor gap will be bridged in the coming days. Overall, the meeting ended with a broad understanding between the two clubs.

Carlo Ancelotti sees the English striker as the centre-piece of his attack for next season given the recent departure of Karim Benzema. After all, Kane has been one of football’s most consistent goalscorers over the past decade.

Yet, Los Blancos cannot afford to let their guard down with one signing and will need to rope in at least two more names in attack to serve as backup options. The exits of Mariano Diaz, Marco Asensio, and Eden Hazard leave them with no squad depth, after all.

Kane has scored 30, 17, and 23 goals in his last three seasons in the Premier League and is the epitome of consistency. Further, he had three assists in his most recent league season and created 14 big chances.
