Vinicius Makes the Cut as Real Madrid Submit 25-Man Squad List for the Champions League

Champions League holders Real Madrid have submitted their 25-man squad list for the group stage of this season’s tournament.

The forward cost Los Blancos a reported total of €46m and it was believed that he would be playing for their B side this season. However, new boss Julen Lopetegui has included him in the contingent who will be participating in this year’s Champions League venture.

Mariano Diaz, another new signing, has also been listed, while the likes of Thibaut Courtois, Sergio Ramos, Luka Modric, Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema have also unsurprisingly been named.
