Real Madrid have dropped Serie A targets James Rodriguez and Mariano Diaz for their friendly with Red Bull Salzburg later.
Marca reports Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane ‘isn’t counting’ on the pair, despite their inclusion in preseason training.
James’ omission will inevitably revive links with Napoli, who reportedly have a verbal agreement with Los Blancos over a loan deal for the Colombian after August 15.
Gareth Bale and Luka Modric have also been left out of the friendly, although Marca stresses the latter has a knock.
Madrid squad to face Salzburg: Courtois, Keylor, Lunin: Carvajal, Militao, Ramos, Varane, Nacho, Marcelo, Odriozola, De la Fuente; Kroos, Casemiro, Valverde, Isco; Benzema, Vazquez, Jovic, Vinicius, Hazard
