Zinedine Zidane’s men are currently on their holidays and after a gruelling season which yielded yet another Champions League trophy, La Liga title, the European Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup, they deserved every bit of it.
But when the full squad return for pre-season training on July 10th, things will quickly get hectic again as they soon depart on their tour of the United States.
Star forward Cristiano Ronaldo will be part of that but his holidays were rescheduled due to his involvement with Portugal in the Confederations Cup.
Los Blancos will contest a number of high-profile pre-season friendlies, starting against Manchester United on July 23rd in California before the Whites take on Manchester City four days later in Los Angeles.
Real then end their stint in the States with a mouth-watering clash against Barcelona in Miami on July 30th.
After that, the competitive football kicks off as Real and Manchester United play in the European Super Cup final on August 8th in Macedonia before Real take on Barcelona in the two-legged Spanish Super Cup.
The La Liga fixtures have yet to be announced.
