It has been a long time in waiting, but Real Madrid fans will finally get a first glimpse of the completed second generation Galacticos project.
However, "El Ingeniero" would not guarantee who will be playing when he simply said during a press conference that there's a "big possibility" Kaka and Xabi will debut as a Blanco in Friday's friendly against Toronto FC.
"First of all, this is just an evaluation,"
But Pellegrini left no doubt as to what the team's main goal will be once the campaign gets underway at the end of August.
"The first challenge is to win," he declared. "Obviously, we have to go after each and every competition that we will be playing in. At the same time, the other challenge is the responsibility of having a style of game that will allow Real Madrid to satisfy all the fans who go to the stadium every week."
Finally, goalkeeper, Iker Casillas chipped in, "We know that we have a team capable of bringing results in all the major competitions in Europe."
Toronto FC's 20,000-capacity BMO Field was reportedly almost filled to the brim for Madrid's first training session on Thursday night. The only key players in the squad who failed to make the trip are Sergio Ramos, Fernando Gago and Marcelo.
The match will kick off at 7:30 ET local time on Friday.
