As Real Madrid prepare for the upcoming campaign at the club’s training facilities, Carlo Ancelotti will welcome one of his linchpins, Luka Modric, to the pre-season camp tomorrow, reports Guillermo Rai of The Athletic.

Real Madrid started training for the upcoming campaign last Monday with only a handful of first-team footballers returning and training with players from Castilla over the past week.

The players who were involved in international fixtures last month had been given an extended break and Modric is among those.

The 37-year-old midfield maestro was in action for Croatia in June as he led them to the runners-up finish in the UEFA Nations League.

Having enjoyed his extra week of break, Modric is now expected to rejoin the group tomorrow in Spain, just before the team flies off for the pre-season tour of the United States of America.

Modric will follow the Spanish trio of Dani Carvajal, Joselu, and Nacho Fernandez who returned to training this past weekend after winning the Nations League with Spain.

The remainder of the players who are yet to return, such as Eduardo Camavinga, Rodrygo Goes, Vinicius Jr, and Aurelien Tchouameni, among several others, will join the squad straight away in the USA later this week.

Real Madrid are penned to play four fixtures on the trip to the US, including an El Clasico against Barcelona.

As for Modric, the 37-year-old rejected lucrative offers from Saudi Arabia this summer to sign a new one-year contract with Real Madrid.

But he will have tough competition for places in midfield heading into the new season following the arrivals of Jude Bellingham and Arda Guler.

Despite that, though, it is expected that he and fellow veteran Toni Kroos will continue to be important pieces in Carlo Ancelotti’s plans.

What is the price tag on Kylian Mbappe’s Real Madrid jersey?




Kylian Mbappe’s arrival at Real Madrid has sparked a frenzy among football fans, with the club swiftly making his iconic jersey available for purchase starting July 11. 

Notably, before July 11, eager fans could not get their hands on a jersey featuring Mbappe’s name and number 9, as he was under contract with PSG until June 30. 

However, once the clock struck July 11, enthusiasts could finally purchase his jerseys in various styles, prompting a rapid sell-out at the Adidas store within hours.

The pricing of these jerseys has garnered significant attention, varying not only by size but also by the type of jersey—Replica or Authentic—that fans choose, reports Diario AS.

Initially, the Real Madrid online store listed the Replica version of Mbappe’s jersey at €100, while the Authentic version, identical to those worn by the team’s players, was priced at €160.

The highest-priced option is the Authentic Mbappe Men’s Home Kit Shirt, retailing at €185. This premium version allows fans to add additional patches such as La Liga or Champions League badges for an extra charge. 

Surprisingly, the women’s version of the jersey is priced equivalently, reflecting gender-neutral pricing practices, while the children’s edition is slightly more affordable at €130. 

Furthermore, even the youngest fans can join in the excitement with a baby version of the jersey priced at €80.

Meanwhile, for those looking for a more budget-friendly option, the Mbappe Men’s Home Shirt comes in at €120. 

Fans can customize these shirts with either a La Liga or Champions League patch for an additional €15, affixed uniquely on the right sleeve, opposite the iconic HP logo on the left, a prominent sponsor of the club. 

These prices apply to the short-sleeved versions; opting for long sleeves incurs a slightly lower cost.
