Real Madrid published their squad list for the upcoming FIFA Club World Cup, which will be played in the United Arab Emirates this December.


Goalkeepers: Courtois, Keylor Navas and Casilla.

Defenders: Carvajal, Odriozola, Sergio Ramos, Varane, Nacho, Marcelo and Reguilón.

Midfielders: Casemiro, Llorente, Kroos, Modric, Isco, Asensio, Ceballos and Fede Valverde.

Attackers: Benzema, Bale, Mariano, Lucas and Vinicius.

Solari included both Nacho and Casemiro in this squad list even though they might not be quite ready to play. While Casemiro has a bigger chance to recover in time from his injury, Nacho’s knee injury could still take more time to heal.

It’s also a bit surprising to see that Jesus Vallejo wasn’t even included. The Spanish defender made his season debut last Thursday against Melilla and appears to be healthy after struggling with injuries all season long. He’s still a developing player and needs minutes in order to improve, so Los Blancos might decide to send him on a loan deal.
