Zidane selects Montreal as Real Madrid 19/20 pre-season base

Real Madrid are heading back to Montreal (Canada) as their main base for their 2019/20 pre-season base in North America. Zidane used the Montreal Impact facilities during the summer of 2016 and was so impressed, has opted to make a return to the Canadian city.

Last year's Russia World Cup was the main factor that impeded Madrid to carry out pre-season in Canada, opting to stay in the Spanish capital due to the fact that 15 of the 23 man squad were involved in action in Russia.
