Mourinho has finally decided to include his whole roster on the team's squad list for the second game of the Spanish Supercup against FC Barcelona. The Portuguese coach will need to discard players before the game starts, but it won't be until one hour before the game that both the starting lineup and the bench player are made public.
With that decision, Mourinho ensures that the whole team will be concentrated until the very last moment. Kaká, whose situation with the club seems stuck, could rejoin the squad in Madrid's most important game of this newly started season.The Brazilian player was reportedly wanting to find a way out of the club, but AC Milan ruled out the possibility of signing him through his chairman Adriano Galliani.
Even though it seems that Modric could finally be on the squad's list, Mourinho might prefer to keep him out of what will be a very intense game with a lot at stake for Real Madrid. The Croatian player hasn't practiced with any teammates at all since the Eurocup concluded, and yet Mourinho said that he could be completely fit in a couple of weeks. But it would not be a surprise to see him on the bench just in case Real Madrid needs an offensive-minded midfielder as the game goes on.
