Bournemouth announce summer friendly with Real Madrid

Championship club Bournemouth have announced a glamour friendly with Spanish giants Real Madrid.

The Cherries, who gained promotion to England’s second tier last season, will take on Carlo Ancelotti’s side at Dean Court on Sunday, July 21.

"It's fate really," Bournemouth chairman Eddie Mitchell told Sky Sports. "My son was talking to a mutual friend who knows people at Real Madrid and got chatting about a possible exhibition match and we've worked hard over the last three or four weeks to finalise things.

"I'm over the moon for the supporters. It'll be a great night for them to see some of the best players in the world and for our players to pit themselves against them.

"We're going to see Ronaldo for sure. And it'll be (Zinedine) Zidane's first game as Carlo Ancelotti's coach. The only ones who won't be there are those that have played in the Confederations Cup."
