Real Madrid Players Back In Training

Modric rejoined the squad and Gareth Bale completed his first training session as a Real Madrid player. Cristiano Ronaldo and Isco are still not able to train with their teammates.

Luka Modric will be able to play at El Madrigal, it seems. The Croatian player completed the training session with his teammates after spending a couple of days treating the knock he had in the game against Serbia.

Gareth Bale also got to know his new teammates and completed the whole session as well, even though he's still not perfectly fit, according to Wales' boss Chris Coleman, who also believes that Bale will not be able to play 90 minutes just yet.

Real Madrid TV journalist Rhiannon Jones tweeted the following picture of Ronaldo and Bale:

Benzema, Morata, Jesé, Nacho, Carvajal and Casillas joined these two players and Illarramendi, Casemiro and López and completed the session normally, while Cristiano Ronaldo, Marcelo, Varane, Xabi Alonso and Isco treated their injuries. Cristiano Ronaldo and Isco remain questionable for the game against Villarreal, but Varane and Alonso will not be able to perform.

On the other hand, Sami Khedira, Sergio Ramos and Álvaro Arbeloa trained apart to recover from their international efforts with Spain and Germany.

Pepe, Di María and Coentrao were allowed to rest today after a long trip that crossed the Atlantic Ocean later yesterday.

The team will have another training session this Thursday and it will be interesting to see whether Isco and Ronaldo join their teammates or not. Maybe Carlo Ancelotti prefers to save them for the game against Galatasaray in the middle of next week.
