It is expected that tomorrow, Raphael Varane will play, in the starting line up, the Santiago Bernabeu Trophy and the fans are curious to see how moves the young signing (18 years) that comes with a guarantee like Zidane, who recommended his hiring: "He has a great future. Players with his temper, that reminds me Blanc, I saw very few".

Mourinho also stamped his mark on the recruitment and has shown it in preseason. Varane was the third player who played more, with 418 minutes, just behind Benzema (436') and Coentrao (422'). In the central defenders payroll, was the most used: Pepe played 351', Carvalho played 348' and Albiol, his direct competitor as the third central, played 331'.
Who could not walk on the green in the preseason was Sahin. He would play the first minutes for Real Madrid tomorrow. The Turkish has 51 days under the command of Mourinho, but a lateral ligament sprained in his left knee keeps him out despite the comeback was scheduled in the China Tour. Yesterday, he rejoined the group in Valdebebas Sports City and if tomorrow he has green light, would play a few minutes to start his history in the white club. It is expected that he can play against Zaragoza if the next League day takes place.
