But Jose Mourinho's men will be shorthanded, as none of the players who participated in Euro 2012 will be in attendance, nor will Brazilian Marcelo , who is competing in the London Olympics. Mourinho has scheduled double training sessions at 10 a.m. and again at 5:30 p.m.

Players whose futures ar in question, like Kaka , Ricardo Carvalho , Lassana Diarra and Fernando Gago , will be in attendance, as well as various academy players.

Karim Benzema will return July 26, with Cristiano Ronaldo , Pepe , Fabio Coentrao , Sami Khedira and Mesut Ozil arriving the 27th. Iker Casillas , Alvaro Arbeloa , Raul Albiol , Sergio Ramos and Xabi Alonso will join the team July 28 in the U.S., where most of the club's preseason training takes place.
