Real Madrid players have held their first open training session under new coach Jose Mourinho at the team's training grounds in Valdebebas.

10 Real players who had not competed at the World Cup returned to start pre-season training, but the session was closed to the media.

Two other players were missing, long-serving midfielder Guti and striker Raul, with local media reporting they have been given a few extra days' leave to decide their futures.

Goalkeeper Jerzy Dudek has agreed a one-year contract extension with Real Madrid until 2011.

The 37-year-old Pole has been understudy to Spain's number one Iker Casillas since leaving Liverpool three years ago.

One player who could be joining the club soon is Getafe winger Pedro Leon. A sports website claims the 23-year-old had left Getafe's training camp to take a medical at Real ahead of completing a move.
