Julen Lopetegui's Real Madrid continue adding players to prepare for the upcoming season. The players representing their country at the World Cup will join up with those not involved in Russia over the summer in the coming days ahead of their trip to the US to play the International Champions Cup as Lopetegui continues to implement his new concepts and ideas on the training ground.
At the end of the week, the players who participated in the World Cup and did not manage to make it to the semi-final including Casemiro with Brazil and Spain's internationals, will join up with the squad.
Nacho, Ramos, Asensio, Isco, Carvajal and Lucas Vázquez will return to work with their former coach, but this time in a different setting entirely. It will also be a reunion between Casemiro and Lopetegui, who worked together at Porto.
The only Spanish international who has already joined preseason training is Alvaro Odriozola, who was presented as a los Blancos player last week.
It will just be Raphael Varane and Luka Modric and Mateo Kovacic left to join up with their teammates at that point although Kovacic is looking for an exit from the club completely as he wants to be a starter somewhere.
