Michael Essien could be set to make his debut for Real Madrid this weekend, as he is named in the squad to face Granada.
The Ghanaian only joined Los Merengues on the last day of the transfer window, Friday, on a season long loan deal from Chelsea.
However, he declared at his presentation today that he was fit and ready to play, and that message has been taken on board.
Meanwhile, there is also the notable inclusion of Brazilian playmaker Ricky Kaka, who returns after a two-week absence from the set-up when he was expected to have found a new club.
