Just two new signings in three UEFA Super Cups

Transfers: Modric Wants Out While World Cup Winner Joins Roma

Modric has made 257 appearances to date for Real Madrid, scoring 13 goals. Real won its third consecutive Champions League title last season but is now without Cristiano Ronaldo following his transfer to Juventus.

"We love that [Bale] is with us".

Speaking to newsmen ahead of Los Blancos' UEFA Super Cup showdown with Atletico Madrid, the 30-year-old said, "Me at Juve with Ronaldo?"

"We are delighted with his attitude and his desire, he's an ultra professional who is training with the desire of a youth teamer".

Over the previous nine years, Ronaldo was crowned as the best footballer in the world five times, helping Real Madrid to four Champions Leagues, with 450 goals in 438 games for the club.

The winger has registered six assists against Atletico down the years, including one in the 2015-16 Champions League final and one in the most recent meeting between the two sides, but he has generally found things more hard against La Rojiblancos.

"Zidane did extraordinary work with incredible success but that is the past", Lopetegui added.

Where is Real Madrid vs Atletico Madrid UEFA Super Cup match played?

However, Atletico coach Diego Simeone said his players have plenty of work to do if they are to compete for trophies against La Liga giants Real and Barcelona.

Navas has been No 1 for Lopetegui throughout pre-season and played in the Champions League final win against Liverpool back in May. But in terms of motivation we never feel beneath anyone.

Barcelona want the former Juventus star for his tenacious qualities which will allow them to keep a footing in games like the stunning 3-0 defeat in Rome which eliminated them from European football last season.
