Zidane: Real Madrid will be 'difficult to improve'

As Real Madrid began preseason training in Montreal ahead of the International Champions Cup, Coach Zinedine Zidane said there's no need to focus on possible player signings, notably French star Paul Pogba.

"I am happy with the squad I have got and it's difficult to improve on it," Zidane said at a press conference. "Do I like Pogba? Of course, he's a very good player and every club wants the best players, but right now he's at Juve and we have a large squad already. There are still lots of players yet to join up with the squad and with the Euros going on we couldn't do anything. We have three games coming up and that's the focus at the moment."

Real Madrid Preseason Squad:
Goalkeepers: Keylor Navas, Casilla, Ruben Yanez, Alex Craninx, Luca Zidane.
Defenders: Raphael Varane, Danilo, Carvajal, Marcelo, Nacho, Lienhart, Tejero, Achraf.
Midfielders: Casemiro, Isco, Kovacic, Llorente, Asensio, Odegaard, Enzo Zidane, Febas.
Forwards: Benzema, Jese, Mayoral, Mariano.
