Los Blancos head to the French capital to face old rivals Liverpool with the showdown clash set for the Stade de France on May 28.
However, following the end of their La Liga campaign on May 20, Carlo Ancelotti’s squad have now returned to training, ahead of facing Jurgen Klopp’s side.
According to reports from Marca, Ancelotti and his players will fly from Madrid to Paris on May 26, with a 48 hour gap before kick off in the final.
The squad will be based at a luxury hotel in Chantilly, on the outskirts of Paris, rumoured to be the Auberge du Jeu de Palme complex.
Real Madrid will train at their hotel facilities on May 27 before a scheduled light session at the Stade de France the night before the final.
Ancelotti is set to have a fully fit squad to pick from with veteran defender Marcelo passed fit to travel.
Consejo Superior de Deportes (Spanish National Council) President Jose Manuel Franco voiced his support for LaLiga in denouncing PSG over the Kylian Mbappe renewal and claims of breaching Financial Fair Play in an interview with Europa Press.
“LaLiga is making use of its powers, defending Spanish football, and we all have to be there. In the defense of Spanish football, we must all go hand in hand. Spanish football considers that the situation that has occurred is not logical and that is why he [LaLiga president Javier Tebas] has done what he has done.”
“UEFA should be quite in agreement with the proposals made by LaLiga. Between all of us, we have to seek the sustainability of the competitions, and in that sense, it seems reasonable to me.”
