First days are always specials. The 8th of July was the start of the new and promising season for Real Madrid with many new faces. The players gathered again at Valdebebas to pass the medical exams before taking a flight to Canada on Tuesday, where they will start the pre-season trainings before playing some friendly games in USA.
Eden Hazard, Luka Jovic, Rodrygo, Mendy, Kubo… many new faces arrived to Madrid on a sunny Monday to welcome the new Real Madrid players. We only missed Militao, who played with Brazil the Copa America together with Casemiro and he will join the group later on during the summer. After a terrible season, the new project is already a reality with Zinedine Zidane on command.
We could also see Gareth Bale, who will be on board on the plane to Canada and his future is still a big question mark. He has not received any offer from a big club, so Zizou would need to find some room for him in the squad, as his talent cannot be wasted. Meanwhile, Florentino Pérez and José Ángel Sánchez are still working on selling more players and getting Pogba, the last target after a successful summer.
Isco might not be on the plane this Tuesday because he will be soon father again, but Zizou count on him. Even if the season has kicked off for Los Blancos, there might be many changes until the first official game starts on the 18th of August against Celta de Vigo at Balaídos.
Now, Real Madrid players will work 10 days in Canadá to be fit and to get ready to play the pre-season games in the United States. Bayern Munich (21st of July), Arsenal (24th of July) and Atlético de Madrid (27th of July) will be the first challenges for Los Blancos. Tottenham Hotspur (30th of July) will close this tour in the US.
