Jose Mourinho has summoned his workforce in Valdebebas Sports City on July 15, at least to those who do not play the Eurocup 2012. In principle, the first pre-season game would be against Benfica on 27 July attending the Eusebio Cup, but white players will have a trip to Morocco soon after the holidays.
Real Madrid has virtually closed the pre-season. As happened last year, the trainings are aimed at reaching the best physical condition to face the Super Cup that will have to play against FC Barcelona. This time the first leg will be at the Nou Camp on August 22 and the second at the Santiago Bernabeu on August 29.
After the two friendlies in Morocco and Portugal, Real Madrid will go back to Los Angeles where white team will play its third friendly on August 2 against Los Angeles Galaxy. Real Madrid has confirmed two more friendlies in the U.S.A.: August 5 in Las Vegas against Juventus and 8 in New York against Milan. The MLS (Major League Soccer) has also announced a friendly against Celtic on August 11 in Philadelphia, but from the white club has not yet been confirmed. Back in Spain, Madrid will prepare the Spanish Super Cup in Valdebebas.
