Real Madrid coach Zidane: I want new signings to do full preseason

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane doesn't want their transfer campaign to drag through the preseason.

Zidane is glad that Los Blancos have completed so much of their business early.

"We are going to have all types of players, from the new signings to the players that are already on the team to the young players who can support and add a lot to a team in pre-season," the Frenchman said in an interview with Charlie Stillitano, the executive chairman of the International Champions Cup competition.

"[To have our signings available for the entire pre-season] is our plan and what we want.

"That is why we already bought players, so that they are ready with us and prepared.

"As you know, the pre-season for a player is very important.

"The important thing is that they are with us from day one.

"They will have played games with their national teams, but will have around one month of vacation and they will be with us."
