Real Madrid fly to the USA for their pre-season tour on Monday.

Real Madrid have named their 20-man provisional squad for their pre-season tour of the USA, with plenty of World Cup stars yet to return.

Gareth Bale leads the list of a squad with fewer stars than one normally associates with the side, with the Liverpool and Manchester City-linked Isco also included.

Only World Cup stars Xabi Alonso and Pepe have returned following the tournament in Brazil, with the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema, Angel Di Maria, Luka Modric, Sergio Ramos and Iker Casillas all yet to link up with the squad.

There is also no Toni Kroos on the list, as he is set for a continued break following his World Cup triumph with Germany just over a week ago.

Madrid will play matches against Inter Milan and Roma in the next 10 days, as well as a sold-out fixture against Manchester United in Ann Arbor next month.

Another man that could be linking up with the Madrid squad in the coming weeks is Monaco and Colombia midfielder James Rodriguez. The 23-year-old was pictured in Madrid over the weekend..
