Sergio Ramos has travelled with the Real Madrid squad as part of their tour of Australia despite being linked with a potential move to Manchester United.
Ramos, who was pictured on the pre-season tour with team-mate Jese Rodriguez, has already been the subject of a £30 million bid from United which was rejected outright by the Spanish giants.
Rafael Benitez seems keen to keep Ramos in his future plans and has included him on his tour of Australia, where the club will face Roma and Manchester City in the International Champions Cup.
Madrid are then due to travel to China to face Inter and AC Milan as they step up their preparations for the new campaign.
Cristiano Ronaldo and James Rodriguez did not travel with the Madrid squad but are expected to return for pre-season duties on Monday.
Real Madrid's pre-season squad:
Goalkeepers: Keylor Navas, Fernando Pacheco, Ruben Yanez
Defenders: Raphael Varane, Pepe, Sergio Ramos, Nacho, Marcelo, Dani Carvajal, Alvaro Arbeloa, Danilo
Midfielders: Toni Kroos, Gareth Bale, Lucas Silva, Luka Modric, Denis Cheryshev, Isco, Asier Illarramendi, Marcos Llorente, Martin Odegaard, Jose Carlos Lazo
Forwards: Karim Benzema, Lucas Vazquez, Jese
