La Liga and Champions League champions Real Madrid continued with their pre-season training in Los Angeles, on Monday.
Madrid are currently in their first week of the pre-season tour to the United States.
Zinedine Zidane’s men were seen sweating it out before their pre-season fixtures begin on July 23 when they take on Manchester United at the Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara.
Los Blancos will then head to face Manchester City on July 26, followed by Barcelona on July 29 and then MLS All-Stars on August 2.
Among the players seen at training were Gareth Bale, Raphael Varane, Sergio Ramos, Marcelo, Isco and Luka Modric.
Gareth Bale signed for Real Madrid in 2013 for a then world record fee of £85.3 million.
Since then the Welshman has impressed in spells but injuries have hindered his career at the Bernabeu.
Nevertheless, he’s still managed to win seven major honours with the Spanish giants, including three Champions League titles in four years.
However, Madrid have now set their eyes on the next player to potentially go for a world record fee, Kylian Mbappe.
The 18-year-old took the football world by storm last season and AS Monaco have reportedly slapped a £120 million price tag on their prized asset.
Bale could be used to fund the move with the likes of Manchester United and Paris-Saint-Germain showing interest.
The Welshman turned 28 on Sunday and is still in his best years but his injury problems remain a concern.

Having had an almost fairy-tale season in 2016-17, Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo will be hoping he can continue his goal-scoring habit.
However, former Real Madrid legend Michel Salgado believes it will be hard for Ronaldo to replicate the kind of form he showed last season.
Ronaldo led his team to win the Champions League title, the La Liga title as well as the FIFA Club World Cup.
He also had a terrific year with his national side too, leading Portugal to European Championship glory.
Salgado claims he does expect Ronaldo to prove his worth yet again for The Whites, and carry their charge to retain the Spanish league.
