Eden Hazard, Thibaut Courtois and Fede Valverde have rejoined Real Madrid’s squad in training this afternoon after passing their pre-season medicals early on Tuesday. These three players will now need a few training sessions before their form can be good enough to train alongside their teammates, but Carlo Ancelotti and his coaching staff will surely be happy to have them back.

Militao, Casemiro and Vinicius are still on vacation after playing in the Copa America Final, but they will rejoin the squad over the next few days so that they’re ready to play and contribute when the 2021-2022 season kicks off on August 14th against Deportivo Alaves.

This will be a crucial pre-season for Eden Hazard, who needs to prove his worth after his first two disappointing seasons in the club. Hazard needs to stay as healthy as possible and he will need a quality pre-season in order to accomplish that.
