Real Madrid head coach Jose Mourinho believes that his squad for next season is almost complete, with talk of a swoop for Spurs' Luka Modric continuing to rumble on.
Real Madrid and Jose Mourinho have enjoyed a quiet summer so far.
Mourinho's men stormed to the Spanish title last season, earning a record 100 points to finish nine points clear of deadly rivals Barcelona.
Since then Mourinho has been quiet in the transfer market, believing that his current squad are well-equipped to try and defend their crown and challenge in the Champions League.
He told reporters: "Our squad is almost complete. These are very special players, some of the world's best."
The Portuguese went on to say that La Liga will be his priority rather than the silverware on offer in European competition.

He added: "There is a lot of passion when it comes to Madrid and the Champions League, but what we want is to win titles.
"In my opinion, winning the league with a record amount of points is something difficult and unique."
Real are 67.00 to win the Spanish league in 2012/13, with Barca 1.001 and Valencia 10001.00.
Meanwhile, former Spurs boss Harry Redknapp has given Real fresh hope of being able to land Croatia playmaker Modric, telling the Sun on Sunday: "I would not be sure Luka would start the season at Tottenham. The club would be happy to sell if they get the right money.
"The chairman said to him last year ‘give us one more season and if Real come in I won’t stand in your way'."
