Sami Khedira Is Back On the Team's List

Carlo Ancelotti confirmed Managing Madrid's report about the German player

Martin Rose

This morning, we reported via Twitter that Sami Khedira would be on Real Madrid's list to face Valencia this Sunday.

Shortly after, the Italian coach confirmed that Khedira will indeed be available, starting the game on the bench.

Khedira will be on the bench and we want him to have some minutes against Valencia. Next week, we will also schedule a friendly match in Valdebebas to help him get some rhythm. If he's on the list that means he's available, but we also need to be careful with his recovery. It all went well and quickly. Modric is not available but Khedira is.

Therefore, Sami Khedira could be available to play in the Champions League Final. But anyway, Ancelotti also confirmed that Illarramendi will be Xabi Alonso's replacement for that match. One way or another, it's good to have Khedira back.
