Reinforcements keep on arriving in Valdebebas as Real Madrid‘s pre-season marches on and Carlo Ancelotti is gradually recovering the 16 internationals without whom he began training sessions back on July 5.
After David Alaba joined last Wednesday and Toni Kroos, Luka Modric, Raphael Varane and Gareth Bale arrived last Friday, another three are expected to return on Tuesday in Eden Hazard, Thibaut Courtois and Fede Valverde.
The three latest arrivals will undergo their medical tests first thing on Tuesday morning and will be at Ancelotti‘s disposal for the afternoon training session scheduled by the Italian coach after the team were given a day of rest.
Eight internationals will train under Ancelotti on Tuesday, when as many as 20 first-team players will participate at Valdebebas.
Eight more are set to return in the coming days. Karim Benzema is waiting to return negative results after testing positive for COVID-19 last week, while Eder Militao, Vinicius and Casemiro are still on holiday after playing the Copa America final on July 11, with Marco Asensio, Dani Ceballos, Jesus Vallejo and Take Kubo all participating in the Olympic Games.
