Real Madrid completed their last training session in Madrid before traveling to England on Thursday to meet Manchester City in the second leg of the Champions League final.
The Royal Club ended a large part of its preparations for the match that will be held next Friday at Al-Ittihad Stadium, and coach Zinedine Zidane announced the list of players involved in traveling with the team.
The list missed the name of the Welsh striker Gareth Bale, in another confirmation of the end of the relationship between the player and his French coach, as Bell did not participate with Real Madrid since the confrontation of Mallorca in the Spanish League on June 24 last.
Zidane put the Welsh striker on the bench in six consecutive matches in the Spanish league, before excluding him from the team’s list in the last confrontation against Leganes.
Despite Zidane’s apparent row and absence from matches, Bill and his agent are firmly committed each time to sticking to the contract linking the player to the royal club, which runs until 2022.
The list also saw the exclusion of striker Mariano Diaz, who had previously been diagnosed with Corona virus, and Colombian striker James Rodriguez will be absent from Zidane’s technical decision.
Although he is on the list of travelers to Manchester, Spanish newspapers have raised doubts about the opportunities of striker Eden Hazard to participate in the meeting, and stressed that he did not get rid of pain at the ankle level, despite the passage of months of undergoing surgery.
On the other hand, the list announced by Real Madrid witnessed the presence of captain Sergio Ramos, although he will not participate in the match after being expelled from the first leg, and Ramos will be found alongside his comrades in the trip, which will allow him to support his colleagues in this difficult test.
Karim Benzema’s classmates seek to turn the tables on Manchester City, the 2-1 winner, and continue the adventure in the favorite tournament for the team that holds the record for the number of times crowned it with 13 titles.
