La Liga By: Iseghohi Odianosen | 11/08/2019

Real Madrid has released squad against AS Roma, troubled Gareth Bale included in the team for their last pre-season friendly before the season proper.

The Welshman was omitted in the last two friendly matches against Fernabache and RB Salzburg respectively.

He has been tipped for a move away from Santiago Bernabeu this season but no suitor came up with the right offer.


Goalkeepers: Keylor Navas, Courtois and Toni Fuidias.

Defenders: Carvajal, Militão, Varane, Nacho, Marcelo and Odriozola.

Midfielders: Kroos, Modric, Casemiro, Valverde and Isco.

Forwards: Hazard, Benzema, Bale, Lucas Vázquez, Jović and Vinicius Jr.

Captain Sergio Ramos and James Rodriguez were not included even though they are fit to play.

Ramos was withdrawn for precautionary motives while the Colombian was withdrawn because Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane wants him to settle his future. It definitely looks like the Colombian playmaker will have to find a new club.
