Weak Madrid for US tour

Real Madrid have listed 20 players for their participation in the International Champions Cup, but do not include the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo.

Carlo Ancelotti’s side will face off against Inter in California on July 26 and Roma in Texas on July 29 as part of their participation in this annual pre-season tournament played in the States.

Also facing Manchester United, Los Blancos have listed 20 players called up for the tour, notably light in attack, as both Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema are not included.

Gareth Bale and World Cup players Xabi Alonso, Pepe and Fabio Coentrao  are included in the selection, whilst midfielder Casemiro, linked with an exit this summer with Inter apparently interested, is not named.

Iker Casillas, Sergio Ramos, Marcelo, Angel Di Maria, Luka Modric, Sami Khedira and new signing Toni Kroos are other notable names absent from Ancelotti’s squad.
