9 players were summoned this July 14 in Valdebebas to join the group for the preseason
Real Madrid already has its entire squad. Benzema, Modric, Hazard, Alaba, Valverde, Asensio, Carvajal and the new signings have joined today. Tchouaméni and Rüdiger have been among the first to arrive to the pertinent medical check-ups before starting training.
Most of them returned yesterday from the different destinations where they spent their vacations. Ibiza, Mallorca, Italy, France, the United States… They underwent a coronavirus test and then the usual protocol set by Sanitas was followed (body measurements, weight, heart tests, etc).
Marco Asensio, involved in the soap opera about his future, arrived especially smiling. He was able to exchange a few quick words with his new companions and thus clears up the rumor about a possible act of rebellion.
Weeks ago there was speculation about the absence of the Balearic in preseason. However, his idea is to train normally and even tour the United States. In this way he will have time to speak with Ancelotti and learn about his plans.
Tchouaméni is going to be one of the great surprises. He has been grinding during his vacations with Fabrice Gautier, one of the best physical trainers in the world. All with the aim of competing for a position with the ‘CMK’ from day one.
Now yes, Ancelotti has his entire squad and next week the US tour starts. In these sessions he will finish deciding which youth players he will take with him and will transfer his first observations about those on loan to the club.
